DIY CANDY CORN BOOKMARKS IN MINUTES

September 14, 2015

Here is a fun Halloween project to do for your little bookworm, or in lieu of candy for the children at your kid's school, and so on.  The candy corn is a symbol of Halloween treats, and these fun bookmarks in candy corn style take only minutes to make! 

 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

  • Card stock in white, orange, and yellow

  • Glue stick

  • Paper trimmer (not shown above)

  • Craft punch

  • Candy corn ribbon

  • Scissors

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Glue the orange card stock lengthwise over the yellow one leaving about 1 3/4 inch yellow showing.  Do the same gluing the white card stock over the orange one.  Use the paper trimmer to create the shape of a bookmark.  Mine is about 1 3/4 x 6 inches. (On 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, you can get 6 bookmarks.) 

 

  

Punch two holes at the top of the bookmark approximately half an inch apart.  I like using a craft punch.  I find it's stronger than a regular hole punch.  Feed about a 7 inch length of ribbon through and tie a double knot.  You can find ribbon like this at craft stores.  Cut ribbon ends in a "v" shape.  You're done!

 

  

   

Older kids experienced with a paper trimmer can make these too!

 

Have you started your Halloween crafting? I like that I can make a bunch of these in less than an hour!
