Step One: Cut Out The Halloween Bookmark Template
First, you need to download the Halloween bookmark template and print out the PDF templates.

Take a green Sharpie, a black Sharpie, and an orange Sharpie.
Use the orange Sharpie to outline the pumpkin patterns to make the jack-o-lantern bookmark. Use the green sharpie to add outline and details on the pumpkin’s stem.
Then, use the black Sharpie to outline and draw details on the bat’s wings.

Glue the eyes cut out on the pumpkin to make the jack lanterns.
Then, glue the black mouth and nose pattern on the pumpkin to finish making the jack-o-lantern. You can color the nose and mouth with a black marker pen if you want to.

Tips and Tricks for Halloween Bookmark Craft:
- I suggest you first make the origami bookmark with square origami paper before printing out the templates. Once your bookmarks are ready measure the templates and adjust the size of your PDF reader, increase or decrease the size of the page to match your origami bookmark and then you can print it. All the templates come in A4 size.
- If you want to reduce the hassle of cutting out the templates, you can use carbon paper to trace the patterns on your craft papers.
- To make your bookmarks last longer use cardstock papers.
- To precisely cut out the patterns consider using a small pair of crafting scissors. Safety scissors are a must if a kid is making the craft.
- Use white glue for a stronger hold, also it dries down quickly.
