Some people bend the corner of a book's page to mark where they are (this is called dog-earing a book). Librarians do not like having their books dog-eared! You can avoid annoying your librarian by making a simple bookmark from the corner of an old envelope.


  • 1 old envelope (junk mail)
  • scissors
  • markers or crayons


  1. Cut the corner off a clean edge of the envelope. It should be about 1 to 2 inches wide.
  2. Then draw 2 half circles under the nose to make the mouth.
  3. Draw two droopy ears on the sides.
  4. Colour the ears. You now have a cute bookmark.


You can adapt this craft to make other bookmarks using different pictures, including flowers, butterflies, cats, or any other image you like.
