Our mask making supplies section includes everything you need to make face masks. A few different styles of elastic cord including nylon elastic cord, flat elastic cord, and round elastic cord are available, which can be used differently depending on whether your face masks will go around the ears or over the head. Adjust the face mask and remove pressure from behind your ears by adding cord locks to the elastic or straps. Cord locks can be used for hand-sewn masks and store-bought face masks alike, and fabric or paper masks. Flat aluminum wire is great to use as a nose strip and provides comfortable protection although some prefer to use the regular aluminum wire for nose strips instead. Our double fold bias tape is used around the edges of the top and bottom of the mask, and can also be used as ties on the top and bottom.
