Today, I’m going to be showing you how to make 3 DIY holiday themed bookmarks!
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!
Next, we are going to make the Let it Snow Bookmark!
To make this, you are going to need Blue and White/Cream colored bookmarks.
First you will need to draw different size circles on the white/cream book mark.
Next, you will need to cut out the circles from the cream/white bookmark.
Lastly, place the circles on the tops and bottoms of the book mark and write the saying “Let it Snow” on the bookmark! Now you’re done!
For the last bookmark, we will make be making a Stain Glass Window bookmark!
You will need the purple and green colored bookmarks.
First, take the green bookmark and make a triangle pattern so that each triangle in laying next to eachother. Every other triangle should be facing up and every other facing down.
Next cut the triangles out of the paper, here is one side,
here is it fully cut out,
Then tape that to the purple bookmark, and you are done!
Now you have 3 BEAUTIFUL bookmarks!
I hope you guys enjoyed these bookmarks! I spent a ton of time getting this together, so I hope you liked it!
