According to NEISD policy, you get 21 extra days to finish summer reading as of August 27 before you actually have to test on it. If you’re like me and your summer reading is long, boring and hard to understand, monster bookmarks are a productive, cute way to take a 10 minute break from reading.
Here’s what you need:
Pretty cardstock-like paper
I started off by making three boxes 2.5×2.5 inches big.
I then shaded out the left and right edges of the bottom square.
Cut off the shaded parts of the square. Fold the two “legs” over each other to make a triangle.
Glue the legs together so they won’t flap up. You now have the basic corner bookmark.
To decorate mine, I used pink paper and cut our to triangles to cover the white part.
I cut out yellow triangles to make it look like the it had teeth, then cut out circles to make the eyeballs.
You can draw on it however you like, depending on how scary or adorable you want your monster to be. Now that you’re refreshed from your summer reading break, you can get back to it and have a great conversation starter while you read in public.
