First choose your colors for the unicorns. We used white, pale pink, and pale blue. Cut into straight strips about 1 ½ inches wide. Fold in half.
Cut pieces out of your colored cardstock for the mane. Scraps of cardstock work well for this craft. These pieces should look like curved horns. Good colors for this are blues, purple, red, and green. For the pale blue unicorns add pale pink in the mane, and add pale blue in the mane for the pale pink unicorns. Mix and match and make your own.
Glue the colored pieces in place at the top of the folded bookmark.
Cut a triangle from a gold sheet of cardstock and glue on back of the bookmark.
Draw eyes on your unicorn with the black marker. Snip the excess bookmark paper away a bit below the eyes.
Cut two squares from the self-adhesive magnet sheet. Stick one square to each side.
And you’re ready for a magical read! These Magnetic Paper Tab Unicorn Bookmarks are so colorful and so cute and perfect to keep the place when studying, too. Be sure to check out more of our back to school ideas at Our Kid Things!
