Bookmarks for Books

New school year is around the corner. Soon tens of thousands of schoolchildren will sit at their desks. Therefore, you need to prepare in advance. In order to make it easier to read a book or find the page you need, you need a bookmark. The bookmark helps to navigate the lines, and at the same time it helps to foster a culture of handling books. Today I propose to make a few bookmarks for books with their own hands. Ways are simple, even a child can handle it. Let's get started. For the manufacture of all the bookmarks we need:
  • - Tab "Cat's foot" (white cardboard, scissors, glue, pencil, pink felt).
  • - Tab “Line Pointer” (scrapbook or plain cardboard, scissors, thin gum, cutter, pencil).
  • - Tab “Tea Cup” (colored cardboard (white and brown), tea bag, glue, scotch, scissors, pencil, felt-tip pen).
  • - “Kitty” tab (white cardboard, glue, scissors, felt-tip pen, pencil).

Tab "Cat's foot"

Step 1. On a white cardboard, draw a cat's foot (height 9, 5 cm and a width of 2.5 cm).If desired, the color of the cardboard can be any, for example, gray, orange, black.

Step 2. Cut out the contour. Now we will make soft pads on the foot. From pink felt we cut out four small circles and another one a little more. Thanks to the felt, the legs will look soft and voluminous.

Step 2. On the back side, draw an arrow (length 4 cm, width 1.5 cm) and cut it. In order for the arrow to look neater, we slightly round its edges.

Step 3.Using the cutter, carefully cut two small cuts along the arrow, then thread the elastic as shown in the photo.

Step 4. To avoid miscalculation with the size of the elastic, put it on the book and tie it on the knot (cut off the unnecessary ends of the elastic). The elastic should sit tight.

Tab "Kitty"

Step 1. On a white cardboard draw a seal (length 12 cm, width 4.5 cm). We draw muzzle, ears and paws. Paws must be at least 3 cm long, otherwise the tab will not hold well. Cardboard can be used in any color you wish.

Step 2. Using the scissors, cut out the contour of our cat. Paws cut out, not reaching the end.

Step 3. Then color our cat. Along the contour, we outline it with a black felt-tip pen and paint the face. With the help of a pink pencil we will make a blush and color the ears so that the cat looks even nicer.You can also draw various patterns, stripes, specks.

Step 4. We hook the paws on the page. Now, when you open the book, it will be fun to meet you the sweetest cat.
