Christmas Bookmark Printable Craft
You can find the printable template at the bottom of this post. You’ll need to grab that and these few supplies in order to get started:
- Colored cardstock papers
- Craft glue
- Black gel pen
Print and cut out the patterns and select colored cardstock papers for each craft. Let’s start with the Santa Claus bookmark craft. Trace the hat and big circle onto red cardstock. Trace the beard, mustache, and small circle onto white cardstock (I’m using a white embossed paper). Trace the oval shape on cream cardstock. Trace the strip on black cardstock and the small circle on yellow cardstock. Carefully cut out the traced patterns.
Stick the small yellow square in the middle of the black strip. Stick the small white circle on the tip of the red hat, and stick the oval shaped cutout with the big red circle by overlapping about a cm on the side.
Stick the beard and the mustache on the oval shaped part (this is the head of the Santa Claus).
Attach the black strip (the belt) along the middle part of the big red circle and attach the hat on the top side of the head.
Use a black gel pen to trace the eyes, nose and mouth of the Santa Clause. You can also draw 2 small blushes on the cheeks using pink highlighter pen.
Use your glue to attach the Santa papercraft onto a popsicle stick to complete the bookmark craft.
Allow to dry and your Santa bookmark is done! While that’s drying, begin assembling your reindeer bookmark in the same manner, being sure to glue the antlers and ears to the top back of your reindeer’s head as shown.
Finally, allow your reindeer to dry as well. These make great gifts too, or use them as gift tags to make your presents extra special!
