Μaria Chatzi, author of the ebook “Ο magikos kirios Kolotoumpas grafei istories”, shares with us step-by-step instructions to create the princess crown bookmark, inspired by the fairy-tale “I prigkipissa pou den etroge melitzanes” by Chrysoula Loulopoulou!
What about the materials?
- a piece of thick craft paper, color: yellow, dimensions: 7x7,5 cm
- another piece of thick craft paper, color: pink, dimensions: 6,5x10 cm
- a self-adhesive label, or a narrow strip of white paper, about 5,5 cm long and 1,5 cm wide
- 3 narrow strips of pink tulle, 16 cm long each
- embellishments (sequins in the color of your choice and golden lace ribbon)
- glitter glue (colors of your choice)
- hole puncher for paper
1. On the yellow craft paper draw a crown with your pencil and use your scissors to cut it out. See picture 1.
2. Glue the embellishments onto the crown and use glitter glue to make the designs, as shown in picture 2. Wait till the glue dries completely.
3. To continue, glue the embellished crown onto the pink craft paper, in the center, as you can see in picture 3.
4. When the glue has dried, add the self-adhesive label below the crown. Then, use your hole puncher to punch a hole over the crown, through which you will pass and tie the tulle strips, holding all 3 of them together, as shown in picture 4.
Your Princess Crown bookmark is ready. On the label, you could write the name of the “princess” the book belongs to.
