How to Make a Unicorn Bookmark

Follow these steps to make a unicorn bookmark:

1. Draw triangle shapes (2 big, 2 small (different colors) for ears and 1 taller/narrow for horn) and flowers on the thick card stock. Cut out those pieces and use them as patterns to trace the same shapes on the construction paper and glitter paper. (See image below to copy the colors we used.)

Draw and cut out 2 small circles from the card stock. Set these aside – they will be the eyes.

2. Glue the smaller triangles on top of the larger triangles.

5. It’s time to attach the different pieces to your folded paper! Use the double-sided tape to attach everything. Place the horn on the upper middle part of the “head” and place the ears at the top, both taped to the back. Tape the flowers to the front of the unicorn face.
