Materials

  • Child’s blunt-tip safety scissors
  • Envelope with a clear plastic window
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Washable markers or gel pens
  • Hole punch and ribbon (optional)

Instructions

  • Cut out the clear plastic window from the envelope. As you cut, leave a narrow paper border around the window.
  • Cut construction paper to the same size as the window you’ve cut from the envelope.
  • Arrange the flowers on the construction paper cut-out, then place the envelope window on top of the flowers.
  • Be sure the flowers show through the window.
  • Remove the window and glue the flowers onto the construction paper.
  • Squeeze glue on the paper border around the envelope window.
  • Place the envelope window over the top of the flowers and press it into place on the construction paper.
  • Have your child decorate the bookmark with washable markers or gel pens.
  • If you like, punch a hole at the top of the bookmark, loop ribbon through the hole, and tie it.
