How To Make Unicorn Bookmarks
The first step is to print off the Unicorn Template here. Then grab your cardstock and trace around each of the templates to make the different colored pieces of mane hair, unicorn face, ears, and cheeks, unicorn base, horn, etc.
Once you get all the pieces cut, you will begin piecing the unicorn together with glue. Feel free to use any colors of cardstock as you would like.
Use a black marker to draw on the face and nose and trace the top of the ears to add definition to the unicorn. If you want to add glitter to your unicorn for an added pop of sparkle!
