How to Make

  1. Download the template and print it onto A4 paper. Then cut out the head shape, the eye bandana and the bookmark shape.
  2. Trace the head and bookmark shapes onto a sheet of yellow card and cut them out. Then do the same with the eye bandana but with a sheet of white card.
  3. Draw coloured spots onto the eye bandana, using the reference on the template as a guide. Then glue it to the yellow face shape.
  4. Use a black pen to draw the eye, nose and mouth, and a black outline around the head and bandana.
  5. Use double-sided foam tape to stick the head to the top of the bookmark shape to create a 3D effect.
  6. Use scissors to carefully cut a small hole at the bottom of the bookmark. Then thread some black elastic through the hole and tie in place with a double knot.
  7. Thread some red, yellow and blue beads to each end of the elastic and tie a knot around the last bead to hold them in place.
  8. If you want to personalise your bookmark, use a coloured pen to write your name down the centre of the bookmark.

Top Tip

Double up the foam tape if you want to create more of a 3D effect.
