Craft: Monster Bookmark Tutorial

A lot of requests came in to share the Monster Bookmark tutorial I displayed in my previous post Monster and Mommy . So here I am, sharing the steps to make the bookmark. It’s extremely easy 4 step tutorial and I am sure kids gonna love it. As I have said before, bookmarks are one of the reasons why I love paperbacks. They make the whole reading experience more fun πŸ˜€
I get a lot of paper pamphlets in my mailbox every single day. And to the utter frustration of my husband, I carry all those beautiful colorful advertisements and stock them up in my cupboard. πŸ™‚ They are cute and can be used in my paper crafts. The trick is to keep it hidden from my husband’s reach πŸ˜€ I hate to let go of any colorful paper, be it in shops or dumped on roadside. For most of my paper creations I have tried to reuse paper as much as possible.

For this tutorial, I used the second pamphlet. Here’s the step by step tutorial to make the bookmark.

Cut paper into a square. Any dimension is fine 5’5 or 6’6.
Fold it into at the center, vertically and horizontally. It will create four creases.Β 
In step two, cut out one of the four regions and then vertically cut out the portions of adjacent sections as shown.
In step 3, take those pointed edges and fold at the crease, over the top section. That’s it. Stick those two pinted sections together.

You can turn them into Angry Bird or Monsters or Cute bunnies πŸ˜€ Go on, play with your creativity.Β 

To make monster teeth, take a paper and cut it in zig zag manner and then stick it at the tip of the mouth.




I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you make one please share your creation as a comment. I would love to see that. πŸ™‚

  1. I love it, specially the bunny. Must make it for my son since we've nicknamed him Bugs Bunny and he hates it. What a cool way to irritate him ;-). Need to look for something dainty for my daughter now.

  2. This is the first post I read today morning as soon as I woke up and I grabbed the nearest book, tore a page from it and tried it to make sure I can do this πŸ˜€ And I succeeded πŸ˜€ Thanks a lot Rajlakshmi πŸ™‚
