Insert one rubber band through the holes on each button so that you have loops like are shown below.

To make this easy, pinch the end of the rubber band and place through one hole and repeat for the opposite hole.

This is a very bad idea as the mask has a large gap on either side at the cheeks. The mask should fit snug without gaps otherwise this is the perfect entry for the air-born virus
