paper clip bookmarks

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Make these fun and crazy paper clip bookmark birds for all your books. You can change their hair, give them a big nose or beak or customise them any way you'd like. Make lots so you can share them with your friends!
Step 1

Wrap yarn around your hand about ten times, then carefully slide off the loops.

Step 2

Cut open the loops on one end, then, holding them tightly together, slide one of the ends through the top of the paper clip halfway. Now, grasp all the strand ends at the top and tie a small piece of yarn around them tightly just above the top of the paper clip.

Step 3

Glue two wiggle eyes onto the "face" of the bird. Let dry.

Step 4

Cut out two triangles from adhesive foam. Peel the backing off one piece and stick it on top of the other piece. Now, glue the end to the front of the bird's face. Let dry.

Step 5
Untwist each strand of yarn to make the bird's crazy hair! Trim it shorter or leave it long and wild!
