Step 1: Hi!
Thanks for choosing my tutorial! Today I'm going to be showing you how to make a cute, easy bookmark! It's super fun and you can use items you find around the house.
Step 2: What You'll Need
•Two pieces of index paper
•One or two colors of yarn/ribbon
•Two or three crayons/markers, if you're going to be doing flowers as a design on the front, I recommend a green crayon/marker and then a crayon/marker the color of your ribbon/yarn.
•A ruler/measuring tape
•A hot glue gun
Step 3: Step One
Get one of your index cards, your pen/pencil, ruler, and scissors.
Begin by tracing an oval/rectangle shape onto the index card. You want this to be 5 inches long.
Now, cut out your oval/rectangle. Place it on the other index card, trace the shape, and cut that out.
Step 4: Step Two
Now, take your ruler and ribbon/yarn. For this step I used yarn, but you can use whatever.
You want three strips of ribbon/yarn. Cut one 4 inches long, and then cut two more 2 1/2 inches long.
Take your hot glue gun and put some glue on the top of one of the cut-out index cards. Take your ribbons and place the 2 1/2 inch ones out to the side of the glue. Place the 4 inch one in the middle of the glue.
Step 5: Step Three
Now, take the index card without the ribbon/yarn on it, and squirt some hot glue all over it. Stuck it on top of the other index card.
You may have to go back and stick the nozzle of the glue gun in between the cracks and such in between the cards.
Step 6: Step Four
Now, with the completed body, draw your design on the front.
Step 7: Completed Product
Now your bookmark is complete! This makes a great gift for birthdays, Mothers' Day, etc.
