Here's an Art Attack for a bookmark you'll never lose! A Cling On Bookmark!
You will need:
Draw a design onto some thin card.
Ideally the design you choose should be something that clings - like this koala.
|When you've finished, cut it out.|
|Place it onto some more card, and draw around the part of the design that clings.|
|Join the ends of the lines up in a right angle...|
|...and cut it out.|
|Turn it over, and fold over the edge to make a tab.|
|Colour in both bits...|
|...then tape or glue the tab part to the back of the bookmark.|
When you do this, make sure that the two bits line up.
You'll now have a bookmark that grabs!
|Open up the Cling On Bookmark, and use PVA glue to stick two magnets to one set of arms and legs, and two metal paperclips to the other.|
|Leave the glue to dry, and when it has dried you'll have something that looks like this.|
|The magnets stick to the paperclips, meaning that the bookmark will stick to whichever page you want to save.|
|For other ideas, how about a squirrel?|
|Or a woodpecker?|
Or a climber - scaling the side of the book!
Try it yourself!
