What You Need
- Tan, white, and brown cardstock
- Black enamel dot stickers
- School glue
- Black marker or pen
- Silver marker
Begin by tracing a circle shape on the tan cardstock for Leia’s face. I used a tea light as my template.
Trace the circle shape on the brown paper, and add Leia’s buns on the sides. Cut out the hair. Trace the hair on the brown paper and cut it out as well, giving you two bun shapes.
Cut bangs into one of the buns.
Next, use a ruler to cut two white strips about 4.5″ long and 1.25″ wide for the body. Cut a smaller strip for Leia’s neck.
Your pieces should all be cut and ready to assemble.
Glue Leia’s neck to the body first. Next, glue Leia’s head on top of the neck.
Glue the other white strip on top of the neck and white strip.
Next, glue Leia’s bangs and hair to the front of her face, and the solid brown buns for the back.
Use the silver marker to draw Leia’s belt on the front white strip.
Place two enamel dots for Leia’s eyes.
Use the black marker or pen to draw Leia’s smile. Your bookmark is complete!
