How to Make a Cute Alien Bookmark


Here are all the materials you'll need:

Black marker pen


1. Print out the PDF template sheet, then cut out the templates.

2. Use the templates to trace and cut out your aliens from coloured craft paper or cardstock.

3. Now, take the alien’s antenna, and glue it on the top of the alien’s head. Allow the glue to dry.

4. Then, take the alien’s hands, and glue them on both sides of the alien’s body.

5. Finish making the body by gluing both feet on the bottom of the alien.

6. Glue the round eye shape on the alien’s face.

7. Then, use a marker pen to draw the eyeball and the mouth.

8. Cut out two pointy teeth and a tongue using craft papers according to the size of your alien’s mouth.
Then glue them on the alien’s face.

9. Now for the final step, use a popsicle stick or cut out a strip from thick card paper and glue it on the back of the alien.

10. Repeat with other colours of paper and assemble the body parts to make other alien characters.
