These cute little bookmarks will both keep your reading progress in check as well as decorate the corners of your book, we think the bunny looks extra funny, with it’s ears sticking out of the book.
Both of these are really easy to make, you just need a sheet of paper, printer, our template scissors and glue. Opposed to origami corner bookmarks these are a whole lot easier to make.
If you like these, you’ll love the fact we also have bugs corner bookmarks as well as a frog corner bookmark with more fun designs on the way.
How to Make Easter Corner Bookmarks With Template
What you need:
- our printable template
- coloring supplies if you printed the black and white version
Step by Step Instructions
Print out the templates – black and white or pre colored.
If you will be making the black and white ones, have the kids color in the designs first.
Once ready, cut out the craft design, cut along the outer line.
Next cut a slit on the head, follow the full diagonal line.
Cut all the way to the end of the line but be careful not to cut the dashed lines.
Dashed lines are for folding.
Start by folding the first dashed line – one on the right side of the full line you have cut. Fold it as shown on the image bellow.
Flip the template (you should see the word glue) and fold along the next dashed line.
Make sure the folds are nice and crisp.
Fold the last dashed line.
Unfold the last one, apply glue on the triangle shape marked with the word glue.
And fold again (press it down for the glue to set).
For the bunny, you will also need to add the two ears.
Apply a small amount of glue on the bottom end of the ears and stick them on the back of the bunny corner bookmark.
All done! Your Easter Corner Bookmarks are ready to take their place inside a book.
