We have been seeing lots of torn paper crafts around recently and it is easy to understand why. This style of crafting is fantastic for children as it helps with their fine motor skills and creates awesome-looking crafts without having to be ‘perfect’. We made this Torn Paper Ghost Craft a while back and have been wanting to do more since. While I was thinking of different tiger crafts I realized that the torn paper technique would be perfect for creating tiger stripes!
- Orange cardstock
- Black cardstock or paper
- White paper
- Black Sharpie or other black pen
- x2 googly eyes
- Glue stick
Let’s Get Creative
Start by gathering all of the supplies listed under ‘Materials Needed’. Next, make the base of the bookmark from the orange cardstock. To do this use the ruler and pencil and draw an even line down one side of the cardstock. We made ours 5cm wide however you can make yours any width you like. Now draw two half-circles for ears at the top of the strip of cardboard and straight lines to connect it all. Now cut it all out using the scissors.
To make the tiger stripes get your black paper. Cut the black paper to be slightly wider than the bookmark. Tear off thin strips. You will want some that go the width of the bookmark and others that only go part of the way across. Tear off some smaller stripes for the face details. From the white paper tear two small circles. If this is tricky you can also do one larger circle.
Now we want to position all of the tiger stripes and face details onto the bookmark. Lay the black tiger-strips onto the bookmark and then place the white circles on the face and googly eyes. Once you are happy with the layout glue it all down using the glue stick.
Finally, add the nose and extra face details using the Sharpie or other black pen.
