Halloween is the perfect time of the year to read Monster books, and what goes better with those books than Monster Bookmarks!
These bookmarks are adorable and will prove that monsters are not scary at all. Perfect for kids of all ages, especially those scared of monsters.
In this post, I share 4 different monsters. You can make them exactly like us, or you can mix and match the pieces to make some unique creatures. You can also let your kids make their own parts to let their imagination flow.
We found these printable templates to be especially useful for classrooms and parties. This way, you only print a copy for every kid and don’t have to worry about anything else!

How to Make a Monster Bookmark
Designing these monster bookmarks was so much fun! I tried to create some unique creatures that will look different from one another and ended up with 4 different monster bookmarks.
I created them using two different techniques. One very quick that only requires 2 folds. And an origami corner bookmark that takes a little bit longer, but it is equally fun. It’s also very easy, we use it in almost all of our Halloween Bookmarks.
For any of these monster bookmarks, you will need paper and printer, scissors, glue, and our Monster Bookmark Templates.
Below I show you the step-by-step instructions to fold each of our 4 bookmarks. And there is also a video tutorial if you are more of a visual learner. Click here to go right to the video.
