"The pomegranates" bookmark: step-by-step instructions

Μaria Chatzi shares with us step-by-step instructions to create "The granates" bookmark, inspired by the fairy-tale "I Myrsini kai i rodia i eulogimeni".

What about the materials?

- a white envelop
- a scrap piece of bright red craft paper
- a scrap piece of dark red craft paper
- marker (color: dark green)
- pencil
- glue

- scissors


1. Use your scissors to cut out one of the envelops corners, so that you will be left with a triangle

2. After that, draw a pomegranate on the scrap piece of bright red craft paper and cut it out with your scissors

For steps 1 and 2, see picture Nr. 1

3. Also, draw a pomegranate on the scrap piece of dark red craft paper but a smaller one this time. Cut this one out with your scissors too.

4. Glue the bigger pomegranate on the triangle (you’ve cut from the corner of the white envelop) and the smaller pomegranate on the bigger one. Wait till the glue has dried.

5. Finally, on the left and right side of the pomegranates, draw some leaves and color them with your marker

For steps 3, 4, 5 see picture Nr.2

Your bookmark is ready!
