Who doesn’t love Minions?!?! Minions are an army of hilariously blundering helpers that are so cute and adorable. Part of their cuteness is their delight in simple pleasures and they are pure timeless comedy that all generations can enjoy.

Materials Needed to Make a Minions Bookmark

Most of these materials you can find at your local Dollar Tree or discount store.

  • Craft Felt – Yellow, Blue, Black, Light Grey
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • Twine, Black
  • Dimensional Fabric Paint, Black
  • Permanent Marker
  • Liquid Fabric Glue
  • Scissors
  • Straight Pins – for when working with older children.
  • MINIONS BOOKMARK PATTERN SHEET

How to Make a Minions Bookmark

This fun craft takes around 30 minutes to complete.

STEP ONE – Download, print, and cut out the MINIONS BOOKMARK PATTERN SHEET. Trace patterns onto colored craft felt with a permanent marker. If creating with older kids you can attach patterns to craft felt with straight pins.  

Cut out with scissors, inside the lines, so you have a clean finished project. Make the overalls as long or as short as you like to give your Minions their own personality.

STEP TWO – Lay the cut-out patterns on your work surface. Attach the blue felt overalls and the black felt boots to the Minion body using liquid fabric glue. A low temp glue gun and glue sticks will also work for this project.

STEP THREE – To create the goggles, glue the grey felt eye pieces onto the black felt straps, and then the wiggle eyes. Attach the completed goggles onto the Minion with liquid fabric glue. Some Minions have two eyes and some have one eye.

STEP FOUR – Cut various lengths of black twine to create the Minion’s hair. Attach to the top center of the Minion’s head with a small amount of liquid fabric glue. Give your Minions some individuality. 

STEP FIVE – To complete the Minion Bookmarks, add the details. Using a dimensional fabric paint pen, add the mouths, outline the overalls, and add the buttons. Draw the “G” logo onto the bib of the overalls.

Tips and Ideas:

Use What You’ve Got. Use what you have on hand to create these cute bookmarks with the kids. Instead of felt, use colored cardstock, cardboard, paint, or even colored craft foam. Yarn or embroidery floss would work instead of twine. Add the details with a black permanent marker, or a glitter glue pen.

Use these Minions as Birthday Place Cards. Add a name to create the perfect place card for a Minion birthday party.

Create a Puppet. Add a popsicle stick to the Minion and make a puppet show of Minion antics.
