DIY Gruffalo corner bookmark.

DIY Gruffalo corner bookmark

Today is world book day! This week we have been extra busy coming up with some fun book themed crafts. We love to read in this house and so we also love to make corner bookmarks to keep track of where we are in our books. We have a box full of different designs; some that we have seen on pinterest and some that we have came up with ourselves. However, i think these cute little DIY Gruffalo corner bookmarks -inspired by Julia Donaldson’s Gruffalo series might just be my new favourite.

You will need

  • Brown paper
  • White paper
  • Orange paper
  • Black and green markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue

To start with you will need to make your bookmark. If you haven’t made one before you can find a guide to folding origami corner bookmarks here.

To start with, cut out two ears the same colour as your bookmark. Next, you will need to cut out two white horns and two white circles for outer eyes. For the inner eyes, cut out two slightly smaller orange circles and use your black marker to dot on the pupils.

Glue your ears and horns down in place on the back of your bookmark then position and stick the two eyes down on the front as shown above.

Use your black marker to draw on a nose and a mouth. Then, use your green marker to dot the Gruffalo’s green wart on his nose. Finish the Gruffalo’s mouth but cutting out two tusk like teeth and some smaller normal shaped teeth. Glue them down in place and put aside to dry.

Finally, cut out an orange square and glue it down inside your bookmark as you can see above. Your DIY Gruffalo bookmark is finished! How cute does it look?!
