DIY Bunny Bookmarks

It’s no secret that we love reading in our house. So often though we are always searching for something to mark our place. So the other day my daughter and I decided to create these fun DIY bunny bookmarks to mark our place in our books. 

Now when we are done reading we can use these fun bunny bookmarks to mark our spot! 

This is the perfect spring craft project for older kids.

Directions

Step 1

Select a colored piece of paper for the bunny’s head, body, upper legs (arms) and select pink paper for the belly and inner ear patterns. Trace and cut out the patterns carefully.

Step 2

Stick the inner ear cutouts on the main ear parts attached to the head pattern. Attach the belly cutout near the top side of the body pattern.  

Step 3

Grab the upper leg (arm) cutouts and stick them on both sides of the body pattern, gluing them only along the open edge and keeping the rest of the pattern free from glue.  

Step 4

Attach the head pattern on the top side of the body pattern. 

Step 5
