The bookmark fits over the top of the page, making it easy to mark where you are up to.
What you need:
- envelopes - can be new or recycled as long as one corner is intact
- scalpel or craft knife suitable for cutting paper
- self healing cutting mat
Firstly cut a corner off the envelope. Ours measured 3 inches on each side, but you could make it smaller or larger depending on the size of your envelope.
Using the photo as a guide, trace a shape or silhouette on the envelope. We made little houses.
Insert the cutting mat between the layers of the envelope. Using your scalpel, cut out the shape.
Fold the shape over so that it stands up when the bookmark is inserted over the page. Rub out any pencil marks with the eraser.
Today is the last day of our summer holidays. Tomorrow Sarah heads back to school and I head back to work. Wishing everyone heading back to school a smooth start to the year!
