If you haven’t heard of Critical Role yet, you’re in for a treat (and a possible YouTube binge)! The weekly show on Geek & Sundry showcases the fun you can have when a group of friends play Dungeons & Dragons. Oh, and these players happen to be voice actors who really get into character, so settle in for a one-of-a-kind adventure.

The half-elven ranger Vex’ahlia has a beloved companion on her journey, Trinket the bear. You can take a Trinket along with you on YOUR adventures with this DIY bookmark!

Flip the brown cardstock strip over. Glue another large armor piece starting approximately 3 cm from the top. Glue two more pieces on top, staggering them about a centimeter apart to give the armor a true plated look.

Let all glue dry.

Next, place a small black enamel dot sticker for Trinket’s nose. Use the black marker to draw his eyes.
