Craft tutorial: Bookmark monsters !!!

For this craft, you will need:

–  cardstock or pretty paper or regualr printer paper

– scissors

– gluestick

– ruler

– pen or pencil

– optional: decorated materials (ex:pom poms, glitter, markers …)

1. On your piece of  paper, draw a square, don’t forget to use your ruler so its sides are  straight. Don’t make it too big – mine measured 8 cm x 8 cm BUT  you could make yours bigger than mine. Draw a second square exactly the same size on the right side of the first square (so they share a side) and a third square exactly the same size on the bottom of the first square. You should end up with 3 squares that make a V or L shape.

2. Using your ruler, trace a diagonal line across the square on the right of your first square, from its top left corner to its bottom right corner. Scribble out the upper left half (now a triangle) of the square, since you won’t be using that part. Next, draw a diagonal line across the square on the bottom of your  first square, from its top left corner to its bottom right corner. Scribble out the lower right half (now a triangle) of this square.

  

3. Cut out all parts of the entire shape that have not been scribbled out. This should be a square with two triangles attached to it, one on the top and one on the right. This is the base of your bookmark monster.

4. Fold one of the triangle inwards, so it covers the upper half of the square. Then fold the remaining triangle over the already folded one.

5. Optional: You can keep your bookmark like this or you can make it a cute little bookmark monster!

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS VERY EASY CRAFT !!!!

  1. Just had to say:

    Your website is the best quick homemade craft ideas place. Seriously.
    From all those out there, even though you only have two so far, no website really
    has good crafts you can make rapidly, using only some commonplace things, and still
    have fun while you’re at it! For example, I spent so much time on Christmas eve,
    looking for a good stocking filler, as I was a little short, and couldn’t find anything worth the time
    until I finally came across a website that showed you how to make a Jacob’s ladder easily, and as
    I couldn’t go out shopping – the shops were all closed, it was also convenient that all the supplies
    for the craft were found in the house.
    I’ve been looking for a proper site since then – you never know when you need it – and here it is!

    Great craft ideas, and I hope to see more! 😉
