To make this adorable bunny bookmark, you’ll need:

An envelope, a used one is fine
Scissors
Glue
Googly eyes
A pink marker and a black marker

(Nine adorable Iowa mammals)

To begin, cut the corner off of an envelope, with a rectangle jutting out in the middle, which will become the bunny’s teeth. Make sure to use a lower corner of the envelope so the sides are sealed.

Cut two ear shapes out of the envelope as well. Glue the two sides of the ear shapes together so each ear is two layers thick.

Glue the ears to the back of the bookmark, sticking out like ears should.

Glue googly eyes onto the front of the bookmark.

Using a pink marker, color the middle of the ears and the bunny’s nose. With the black marker, add whiskers and the delineation for the bunny’s teeth.

Mark your page by slipping the bookmark over the corner of the page where you are stopping! How cute!
