brown corner bookmark

As mentioned make your basic corner bookmark in your chosen hedgehog colour. I love that brown packing paper looks just the thing!

triangle cream face

Snip off a corner from some cream paper – you want that right angle. And draw a little face. It actually looks a bit like the “quarter” of a polar bear face.

cut out hedgehog's face

Cut it out and glue to the “closed” corner of hedgehog’s body!

trim the sides to shape body

Snip off two edges (see images) to shape the bookmark into more of a hedgehog rectangle. I like to snip one and then use that cut off piece to help guide me when cutting the other side, so it is nice and even.

cut hedgehog spikes

Now cut out some “traingles” around the top half of the hedgehog’s body, to resemble the prickles.

add leaves

Finally cut out some paper leaves (or draw some on white paper and colour in), then glue behind your hedgehogs hear for that finishing touch!
