Mickey and Minnie Felt Bookmark Craft Materials:

- Liquid Glue with Fine Tip OR Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Permanent Marker – Fine Tip
- Computer and Printer
- MICKEY AND MINNIE BOOKMARK PATTERNS
How to Make These Fun Disney Bookmarks:
The first thing you need to do is download these patterns. Next, you’ll print them and cut them out with scissors.
Once you’ve done that, trace the patterns on felt with a fine-tip permanent marker. There are simple directions on how to do this included on the pattern sheet.
Finally, you’ll cut two black heads for each bookmark you’re making.
Step 2: Assembling Mickey Bookmark
We’re going to start off by making your Mickey Mouse bookmark. First, you’ll attach two black felt Mickey heads to either side of the top edge of the black rectangle body.
Next, you’ll attach the red rectangle pants on top of the bottom section of the black body.
To finish, attach a gold bow at the neck and white buttons to the top edge of the pants. It’s looking cute, right?
TIP: If you don’t happen to have the correct size buttons on hand, you can either paint buttons you already have with white craft paint OR cut buttons from white felt.
Step 3: Assembling Minnie Bookmark
Now we’re going to make your Minnie Mouse bookmark. Start by cutting out approximately ten white felt circle polka dots.
Then you’ll glue them onto a red felt rectangle body using the photo above as a guide for placement. Make sure to let this thoroughly dry before moving on.
Next, you’ll attach two black heads to either side of the top edge of the red rectangle body. Once it’s dry, flip it over and trim the excess white felt from the polka dots.
To finish, attach a red felt bow onto the top of the black felt Minnie head.
And that’s it! See, I told you it would be a simple Disney craft!
Create these quick and easy Disney bookmarks with the kiddos and share the wonderful experience of reading! Create a set for your family and some to give as gifts this holiday season.
Disney Bookmark FAQs
Yes! If you don’t have time to make these cute Disney bookmarks, you can always use paperclips in a pinch. They work so much better than scraps of paper or receipts. Paperclips stay in the book easily plus it’s simple to remove them. Bobby pins are another similar option.
It depends. Using a bookmark is much better than dog-earing the pages in terms of destroying a book. But, if your bookmark is too bulky, it can damage the binding of your book and loosen up the pages. Just keep this in mind as you make your Disney felt bookmark.
As you’ve seen above, you can use felt and buttons to make a cute Disney bookmark. Other popular options include paper, cardstock, leather, ribbon, and paperclips.
