Here's how to create Felt Bookmarks for Summer Reading:
To begin the Disney Inspired Felt Bookmarks, download patterns below ⇓, print them, and cut them out with scissors. Trace patterns on the red, black, white, and gold Kunin Felt with the MONOTWIN fine tip permanent marker according to directions included on the pattern sheet. Attach patterns to black felt with straight pins or use a white chalk pencil to trace. Cut two black head shapes for each bookmark.
Assembling Mickey: Attach two black Kunin Felt Mickey head shapes to either side of the top edge of the black rectangle body with MONO Multi Liquid Glue or a Glue Gun and Glue Sticks. Attach red rectangle pants on top of the bottom section of the black body. To finish, attach the gold bow at the neck and white buttons to the top edge of the pants.
TIP: If you don’t happen to have the correct size buttons on hand either paint buttons you already have with white craft paint OR cut buttons from white felt.
Assembling Minnie: Cut out approximately ten white Kunin Felt circle polka dots and attach with MONO Multi Liquid Glue to red felt rectangle body using the photo for placement, let dry. Attach two black head shapes to either side of the top edge of the red rectangle body. Once dry, flip over and trim excess white felt from the polka dots with scissors. To finish, the felt bookmark, attach the red felt bow onto the top of the black felt Minnie head shape.
