These adorable little bookworm bookmarks are so sweet and simple. They’re perfect for young readers or as a handmade gift for loved ones! We originally made one for Granny but i liked them so much that my little guy wanted to make one for me too and aren’t they just the sweetest?

Heres what we used

  • Coloured card
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Pen

How to make these bookworm bookmarks

Start by cutting out the rectangle shape of your bookmark. Then take your scissors and cut out 6-8 little circles. Glue them into an zig-zag pattern to make the bookworm’s body.

Add a face to your bookworm. For ours we added two googly eyes, a paper mouth and two antennae. Once the eyes had secured a little we used a pen to draw around them and add some glasses.

Next it’s time to make book. Cut out a rectangle strip of card that is the same height as your bookmark and then fold it in half to make the book. Trim the width as necessary. Then cut out a slightly smaller rectangle from your white paper and glue it into the centre of the book to make the pages. Use a marker to add a special message.
