Mouse Corner Bookmark

Mouse Corner Bookmarks

A couple of years ago, I was planning to make some heart bookmarks for Valentine’s Day but remembered that Chinese New Year comes first, and I had not prepared any craft for it yet.

Quickly, I decided to combine them both and create this DIY Mouse Corner Bookmark.

It was the year of the rat, so I figured that this craft would go really well with it. You can call them Rat Bookmarks if you want. They look pretty convincing if you ask me 🙂

I used an easy folding technique that I’m sure kids of all ages can follow, although young children might need some help when cutting the smaller pieces.

This bookmark also requires a little bit of tape to keep its shape intact, especially if it’s going to be slipped into books over and over again.

The mice come in 3 different color combinations, so you can print the one you like the most.
