Instead of using random scraps of paper, I whipped up these super colorful and cute kitty themed DIY bookmarks out of paint chips!
Are you a cat lover? (Good.) Are you a book lover? (Great.) Do you love colors? (Yes? Me too!) We must be on the same wavelength because today’s cute cat bookmark craft is just for you! Hiya! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks.
My son and I just started the summer reading program at our library… which means that we’ve been reading . . . a lot. Often times we never quite finish a book, and I’m always left looking around for something to hold our page.
You may have seen the other bookmarks we’ve made: the confetti bookmarks, the flower bookmarks, and the origami page corners. I hope you’ll check out these versions because each of them are fun and unique in their own way. Having said that, I’m kind of in love with these kitties!
Instead of using random scraps of paper, I whipped up these super colorful and cute DIY bookmarks out of paint chips! Now we have tons of cute cat bookmarks lying around to mark our pages all summer long!
Ready to make this purr-fectly adorable bookmark? Let’s get making!
Cute Kitty DIY Bookmarks
Gather These Supplies
- Paint Chips
- Craft Knife
- Cutting Mat (or a piece of cardboard)
- Permanent markers
- Ruler (or straight edge)
Let’s get rid of any unwanted words from your paint chip. Use a ruler to draw guiding lines around the words. Then, cut them out. Erase any leftover pencil marks.
Use your pencil and permanent markers to draw the shape of a cat. Make sure you draw the arms long enough so that they’ll hold onto your page.
Use your scissors to cut out your cat’s ears. Then, use your craft knife to cut around your arms.
Depending on how sharp your knife is, you might have to retrace your cut several times. Erase any stray pencil marks and gently pop out your cat’s arms.
Tada! You’re all done! These DIY bookmarks are so easy to make, you could probably make a small army of cats to hold your pages while watching your favorite tv show.
And if cats aren’t really your thing, no worries. You could also try making other animals. I’ll bet a dog, fox, or elephant would look super cute too!
