Step 1

Let’s start our craft with the Charmander bookmark. Select orange coloured craft paper for the head, body, paws and tail, yellow coloured craft paper for the flame and white for the eyes. Trace the Charmander patterns from the template to the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely. Trace and cut the base of the bookmark on a cardstock paper.

Step 2

Glue the yellow flame pattern on the flame part of the tail pattern. Use colouring pencils to colour the eyes and then attach the eyes with the head pattern. Grab the body pattern and glue it with the base on the top end but keeping the bottom 1 cm of the body part intact (do not apply glue there).

Step 3

Place the paw patterns under the bottom side of the body pattern. Overlap the top sides of the paws with the bottom side of the body and then glue the bottom side of the body with the base.

Step 4

Glue the head on the top side of the body part by overlapping about a cm of the bottom side of the head with the top side of the body pattern.

Step 5

Glue the tail at the backside of the base, keeping the tip of the tail facing upwards. Make sure not attach the tail right at the back side of the body pattern.

Step 6

Use a black gel pen to draw the mouth and the nose of Charmander. For the nose I basically added 2 dots only and a very simple curved line with 2 small fangs popping out. Try putting a smiley face on each characters.

Similarly, craft the rest of the characters, the making process is the same for all Pokemon hug bookmark patterns.
