Before you start, you’ll want to cut your construction paper into 1-1 1/2 inch strips, these will be the base of your bookmark.

The first bookmark I will show you how to make is the CandyCane!

First of all, you will need either a white bookmark and a red bookmark, or a pink bookmark and a cream bookmark.

First, you will need to create diagonal dashes on your pink or red bookmark, this is where you will cut your stripes to make the pink/red part of the candycane.

Next, you will need to cut these diagonal lines, to make small strips of paper.

Then, you will need to organize on your cream/white colored bookmark, where you will put the stripes on your book to make the candycane.

After this, tape your stripes neatly onto the base of the bookmark.

As you can see, the sides will be uneven, so neatly trim them off.

Lastly, decorate your candy cane! I put “Happy Holidays!” on the cream parts!
