Here's how to make them....

  1. For each bookmark, measure and cut a strip of card or foam approximately 23cm by 4cm.

  2. Decorate by sticking on foam or paper flower, butterfly or insect shapes or stickers or use small pictures cut from an old magazine.

  3. Alternatively, draw and colour your own designs onto white or light-coloured card or create designs with rubber stamps, if you have them, and then colour them in.

Here's a pdf file you can use.

What's a pdf file?

A pdf file is just a type of computer file (like a Word doc file) that requires a particular computer program (like Microsoft Word) to be able to view it.

However, the good news is that the computer program you require - Adobe Acrobat Reader - is free and is pre-installed on all new computers. But, even if you have an older computer and don't have this program installed on your computer already, you can download it here for free right now from the Adobe website.
