Picture of Monster Bookmarks
I knew when I found out that my son's school wouldn't allow candy with their Valentine's Day cards that I would have to get creative to make up for no candy!

My son is in kindergarten and all the students are quickly learning how to read. I thought it might be fun for all of them to have a bookmark monster that can bite their pages!

I found a picture of a very similar bookmark but it required much folding that I didn't want any part of. I wanted them to be quick and easy since I was making so many. These are simply corners cut off of envelopes!

Step 1: Measure and Cut

Picture of Measure and Cut
On an envelope (flap open) draw out two squares - one on each side using a pencil and ruler. I made mine three inch squares.

If you don't have envelopes sitting around save a few pieces of junk mail and cut the corners off of those!

Once the lines are drawn cut out the squares.

Finally got some free time and will and made a couple. Very easy to make, I made mine whilst watching a film. I gave them to my friend as a gift and now the other people who saw them want one as well :)

I have a bookmark similar to your bookmark. I would like you to make an instruction about it. You don't even need to mention me but just let me use your instruction in the future, please!

These are darling! We made a bunch with the girls from church, but they would be perfect Valentine's for the kids to give out too! Thanks for the reminder of an awesome project! :)

Thank you and YES! My son LOVES reading them and I laugh every time I read them to him. Soon enough we will have the entire series decked out with monster bookmarks!
Very sweet! I remember reading them when they came out. There were only a couple then, but I feel like I always see a new one in the bookstore windows nowadays :)
