Paper Snowman Bookmark Craft

The full list of materials, tools, and instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through before starting this project to ensure that you have everything required and understand the steps and timings involved.

If your kids love building snowmen, then they are sure to love making one out of paper too!

This paper snowman actually becomes a bookmark – or you could use it as puppet.

You only need a few simple craft supplies which you may already have at home, plus the printable template.

You could make just one snowman, or a whole flurry of snowman bookmarks in lots of different colors.

And if you want to get making straight away but only have white paper, just color the different parts in!

Whatever you do with this craft, the most important thing is to have FUN!
