Go back to school with the brightest witch of her age by making a Hermione Granger bookmark to nestle in her one of her favorite things: a book.
This bookmark is inspired by the look of the new Pop! Hermione Granger recently released by Funko.
What You Need
- Black, white, maroon, gold, brown, and light tan/peach cardstock
- Black enamel dot stickers (like these from Doodlebug, found in craft stores with the scrapbooking supplies)
- School glue
- Black marker
Begin by cutting two black strips the same size, approximately 1.25 inches by 6 inches (or 4 inches for a shorter bookmark). Cut a small oval for Hermione’s face, and a strip smaller than the black strip for her neck and shirt.
Next, cut a small shape for the tie out of the maroon cardstock, and a small strip of gold for the tie’s stripes.
Cut a hair shape out of the light brown cardstock, using the oval as a guide for size. (Remember, this is Hermione, so the poofier the better!)
Now it’s time to start putting it all together!
Glue the oval behind the hair, and then glue the white strip to the bottom of the face.
Then, glue the maroon tie under Hermione’s chin. Cut the gold strip to fit and carefully add two stripes to the tie.
Next, cut a small triangle in the top of one of the black stripes for the front of the robe. Line it up with the tie and glue the robe to the shirt.
Flip the bookmark over, and glue the other black cardstock to the back to finish the robe and give the bookmark a cleaner look.
You can also trace her hair on the brown paper, cut it, and glue to the back of her head to finish the clean look.
You’re almost done! Place two black enamel dots for Hermione’s eyes, and draw a smile beneath.
Finally, to add some texture, use the school glue to draw waves in Hermione’s hair and down the length of the robe to give it some detail.
After the glue on the front dries, flip the bookmark over to add waves to the back of her hair with school glue for the final touch.
Allow the bookmark to dry completely, and Hermione is complete.
