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.
