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!

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.
