How to make your Red Ted Bookmark
I hope you don’t mind the cheeky STEP photos I borrowed from the Ted Bookmark Make! They really are the same steps.. except this time we also made some plaits instead of just tassles!
These darling little bookmarks really are super easy to make!
Print off your printable.
Fold along the dashed line.
Open up the paper and add glue to the back of your little teddy – be sure to reach into all the corners of Ted – the ears and brush etc…
Fold your paper back together and glue the two sides together. By gluing the two halves together, you get a MUCH strong bookmark and of course the opportunity to also add the Red Ted Art logo!
Cut out your little Arty Ted – if you want you can add a little “white bit” at the top of the head for the hole punch later. I did this with the laminator. It is a question of preference.
Laminate and cut out again.
Hop over to our Easy DIY Tassel tutorial and make a set of tassels in Red Ted Art colours: red, orange/yellow and light blue. Tie on and done!
How to make a plait with three strands:
If your kids are still learning how to plait, you may find this video helpful! When coming to making these bookmarks, the kids may find it easier if you tape the Pip Bear Bookmark down on a table with some masking tape, to create a little tension and then start plaiting!
Happy Bookmark Giving and Happy Reading!! These are going into our little free library!
You can also watch the Ted Bookmark video if that helps!
