Making paper bookmarks has always been one of my favorite activities since I was a little girl. Now my kids are following me.

This year we have made a dozen of different bookmarks from paper

We have been mainly focusing on Winter themed ideas as well as Christmas. Currently my favorites are my Reindeer paper bookmark craft and my penguin diy bookmarks.

Nutcrackers are one of those things you only see at Christmas time!! My little boy loves guards and he thinks Nutcrackers are special guards for Christmas. He thinks they stop the grinch from stealing Christmas presents 🙂

Of course when I told my kids I had a free template to help us make some paper Nutcrackers they were so excited! I am really hoping they are as excited to use the end product in their reading books!

If you like all things Nutcracker, then I recommend my Popsicle Stick nutcracker craft also

For now please find my step by step craft instructions with images to help you make these.
