Football Bookmark (World Cup Corner Bookmark)

Football Bookmark

This year’s World Cup is kicking off soon, and to celebrate it, I designed this cute football bookmark. In fact, these corner bookmarks have become one of our favorite types of craft, so we make one for every important occasion.

We love them because they are super easy to make and perfect for almost all ages, even adults! And these soccer-themed ones won’t be the exception.

They are perfect for making with kids if they are counting down the days for the World Cup to begin. And you can print as many as you need to use at home, school, library, or even for a playdate.

You can find a list of materials and the full instructions down below. After them, you can also find a link to download the template (it’s red!)

And once the games have started, you can keep track of the scores with this free printable World Cup bracket.

Let’s have fun before the biggest football event in the world starts!
