Select colored craft papers for this craft. Use craft papers for the unicorn pattern and cardstock paper for the bookmark stick. Trace the template patterns on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely. I used the golden craft paper to cut out the horn pattern.
Take the golden horn pattern and stick it on the horn layout of the base pattern
(the unicorn head). Stick the small circle cutouts on the center of the flower cutouts.
Stick the small triangular shape (inner ear parts) in the middle of the ear layouts of the base pattern. Stick the semi-circular shape on the bottom end of the unicorn base.
Stick the flowers along the top end of the unicorn head.
Use the pencil to trace the face details of the unicorn on the base pattern. I drew the eyes, nose, and a smiley face.
Use a black sharpie or a black inked gel pen to trace and fill the traced face details.
Cut out a strip of cardstock paper (any size you prefer) and stick the unicorn head on any of the open ends of the strip. Allow the glue to dry completely before using the bookmark.
