DIY Makeshift Emergency Mask

I designed an emergency maskeshift mask which can be made in less than a minute by anyone without sewing, simply with home and office supplies, such as paper napkins, paper towels, paper clips, binder clips and rubber bands.

If handled with care, it can protect others from your droplets, but its use for your own protection is very limited. If available, please wear a certified mask! When you use this one, understand that you’re doing so at your own risk and follow the usual safety rules.

Translated instructions and pattern as PDF, video tutorial and notes for both versions can be found in the corresponding blog post.
