Mickey Bookmark Craft by Janel Adani
It’s back to school time! 2 out of my 3 kids have headed back to school. It’s always a bittersweet time for me. I enjoy having my kids at home in the summer, but I also look forward to a little break and some one on one time with my youngest.
Well, if you know us, we are a Disney family. Both of my oldest girls rock their Disney side pretty much every day at school. My 6 year old was so excited to find out that her teacher was a Disney fan and almost every day in school her teacher plays Disney music.
My 6 year old is just now getting into reading and her homework every night is to read. So, being that we are huge Disney fans heading back to school, I saw this Mickey Bookmark craft over on the Disney Family website and thought it was absolutely perfect for both my family and The Main Street Mouse Family! I know all of my kids will enjoy Rocking their Disney Side while reading. So grab the kids and let’s get crafting!
What You’ll Need
Download Mickey Bookmark
•Extra jumbo (1 inch wide) or jumbo (¾ inch wide) wooden craft stick
•Red acrylic paint
•Cardstock (white and black)
•Black permanent marker (fine-tipped and regular-tipped)
•2 mini white buttons or white beads
•Small foam brushes (optional)
How To Make It
⦁ Paint the jumbo craft stick red, and set it aside to dry.
⦁ Meanwhile, print the template on a sheet of white cardstock. Cut out the face/head piece and color in the eyes, nose, outer face, and ears with black marker, as shown. Go over the mouth line with the fine-tipped marker as well. Use the head backing template piece to cut out a matching shape from black cardstock.
⦁ Glue the face/head piece to the top of the stick so that the chin is about 1/4-inch above the lower edge of the shirt. Then glue the head backing to the back of the face/head, sandwiching the stick top between them and matching up all the edges.
⦁ Brush a protective coat of glue sealer on both sides of the bookmark, if you like. This will also give it a little sheen. For the finishing touch, use dabs of tacky glue to attach two mini buttons to the stick right below the shirt.
