Here's how to create Dr. Seuss Quote Bookmarks:
To begin the Dr. Seuss Quote Printable Bookmarks, gather all supplies. Measure and cut a 3” by 2” section of heavy-weight cardboard (I like to save the backs from legal pads). Place a 20” length of Red Heart Turqua yarn across the top of the cardboard, and then wrap the yarn around the cardboard 75-100 times.
Tie off the top of the tassel, cut the bottom of the tassel and remove it from the cardboard. Measure and cut a 12” length of Red Heart Turqua yarn and tie off a section approximately one-inch from the top to create the tassel. Use scissors to trim the ends of the tassel. Turqua is the perfect Thing 1 and Thing 2 color match!
Rotate the tassel so that the fringe end is at the top. Attach two wiggle eyes to the top edge of the ball section of the tassel with a glue gun and glue sticks. I am an impatient crafter, so I prefer a glue gun, but you can definitely use liquid craft glue.
Measure and cut red cardstock into 2 1/4″ by 8” rectangles using a paper trimmer. Punch a hole in the top center of the bookmark, thread the yarn ends from the tassel through the hole, and then tie in a bow. This will attach the Thing head to the Thing body.

Cut out the Thing 1 and Thing 2 emblems with scissors and attach them to the front of the bookmarks with the Mini Power Tape adhesive runner. To finish, cut out the quotes from Dr. Seuss with scissors and attach them to the back of the bookmarks with the adhesive runner.
