Hanprint Art Bookmarks
Have you ever thought to turn handprints into Jellyfish? What about a jellyfish into a bookmark? Me either. During naptime the other day, my non-napper wanted to paint his hands. He asked if we could turn his handprint into a bookmark for his books. Sure, I thought.
After painting his hands, it looked slightly like a jellyfish…So, now we have Jellyfish Handprint bookmarks…
So easy to make…Start be painting the palm of the hand and pressing gently on a piece of cardstock.
After the paint dries, cut out each handprint.
It’s totally cute left like this (1), but we decided to make it a little sturdier with some coordinating cardstock. We glued the hand to the cardstock and cut around the handprint. (2). Just to top off the cuteness, we added a couple googly eyes.
In order for the bookmark to stay on the page, simply cut a smile using an exacto knife.
Now, it’s time to mark the pages in a book…A friendly little jellyfish will be smiling the next time that book is opened.
