They always disappear – our bookmarks. It’s time to do a DIY for two really cute ones, which hopefully last longer! Even if not… You can create countless bookmarks with this easy step by step tutorial!
Get your crafting buddy (mine is the cat haha) and let’s start! All you need are a bunch of markers in the colors you like, watercolor, watercolor paper or any white paper that’s thick enough to handle water and markers, a sharp cutter knife, a ruler and a pencil.
The first step is to prepare your sketches:
Easy, isn’t it? Now the hardest part of this DIY. Take your knife and cut along the cat’s paws and the fox’s snout. Make sure to create a clean line with no fuzzy edges! Also you should take a pad (for example thick cardboard) underneath your paper so you don’t ruin your desk or whatever.

Now all that’s left is to color them in! I choose a foxy orange marker for the fox and grey watercolor for the cat. Then I paint the edges with black ink to create sharper contours. That’s it!
All that’s left now is to read a book and use them! I hope they won’t disappear like all the others 🙂
