Get ready for spring reading with these cute animal corner bookmarks! The printable includes three animal templates for the project.
Spring has sprung and my youngest is on board with all spring crafts (just this weekend she painted wooden flowers to display in her room.) She continues to have a variety of books that she’s reading every night – some are shorter books, but this is the year she got into chapter books. So we need bookmarks!
The printable for this project has templates for a fox, hedgehog and deer. All super cute and all can be made in your own way.
What you need to make these spring animal corner bookmarks:
- Colored paper
- A pencil – to trace the template
- Craft glue or a glue stick
- Sharpie or gel pen
- A pair of scissors
How to make the spring animal bookmarks:
Step 1 – Take a piece of square paper (15 cm x 15 cm) and fold it in half, diagonally.
Step 2 – Fold up the right bottom corner and join it with the top, open corner. This will fold the right side
of the current pattern in half.
Step 3 – Similarly, fold up the left bottom corner.
Step 4 – Unfold the right and left folds.
Step 5 – Fold the top corner of the top layer and join it with the bottom edge.
Step 6- Fold up the right side and tuck in the corner inside the top-half fold layer.
Step 7 – Tuck in the right side and flatten it with the pattern.
Step 8 – Similarly, fold up, tuck in and flatten the left side.
Step 9 – Select different colored papers for the fox, hedgehog and deer patterns. Trace the template
patterns on the papers you selected and cut them out. Let’s start with the fox craft.
Step 10 – Attach the face part on the bottom part of the head cutout.
Step 11 – Attach the ear cutouts on the top side of the head cutout.
Step 12 – Use a sharpie to draw the eyes and the nose of the fox pattern.
Step 13 – Attach the blush cutouts on both cheeks of the fox pattern.
Step 14 – Take the origami corner bookmark.
Step 15 – Attach the papercraft fox pattern on the triangle side of the origami corner bookmark.
The deer and hedgehog will be similar in their steps (basically just different colored papers.)
