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 We originally made one for Granny but i liked them so much that my little guy wanted to make one for me too and aren’t they just the sweetest?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
- Googly eyes
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.
Finish off by adding any optional decoration and your bookmarks are ready to use or gift!
