Bookmarks can bring life to a scary story! They are a great way to keep your place in a story especially if you are reading a long book.

Younger kids like to make these and play with them afterwards. You can use them as puppets and pretend play!

Step 5:

Apply glue on right and left sides of the patterns and place the arm cutouts on the glued sides.

Step 6:

Remember to attach the arms facing towards each other, inside the base.

Step 7:

Use scissors to trim the extra sides of the arm cutouts and align the outer edges of the arms with the base outlines. Use a sharpie to draw the mouth of the patterns.

Step 8:

Slide a page under the arms of the ghost and candy corn patterns to use them as bookmarks.
