When Mom calls you for dinner and it's time to stop reading, use your own corner bookmark to hold your place.
What You'll Need:
- Junk mail envelopes
- Blunt scissors or pinking shears
- Markers or colored pencils
- Scrap of felt
- Craft glue
Step 1: Cut the corners from the envelopes of your junk mail. For a straight edge, use scissors to cut the corners. If you want a zigzag edge, use pinking shears.
Step 2: Decorate each corner triangle with markers or colored pencils. Draw on eyes, ears, whiskers, and a nose to make a bookmark mouse. Cut a little tail from a scrap of felt, and glue it to the back of the bookmark.
Or, if you cut a wavy edge on the corner triangle, draw a sea scene on the bookmark. Draw waves and a sailboat.
Step 3: Place the triangle bookmark on a page corner to mark your place in your book.
