Hello Kitty Craft Bookmark Using Pasta
- Hello Kitty Free Printable
- Bow Tie Pasta
- Glue Gun
- Paints – All purpose / acrylic paints , Multicolors + white
- Jumbo Craft sticks
- Modge Podge – Gloss.
Start by coloring the pasta in different colors. We used chalk markers, but very soon realized that these wash off. Use Acrylic / all purpose paints instead. Use a brush to cover the pasta evenly. Let dry.
Add polka dots using a brush and white paint. While the pasta dries, print our free Hello Kitty template. It has 9 correctly sized hello kitty drawings that fit perfectly over jumbo craft sticks. Be sure to select the option – fit to size.
Slowly cut out each hello kitty template taking care to not cut off the whiskers. Don’t worry if you do, just paste a black thread over it and you are as good as before.
Using the same colors that you used to color the pasta, color each hello kitty cutout. Cover the dress and the sleeves evenly. Let dry.
Using a brush, add polka dots carefully. Let dry. Repeat the same for the other cutouts too. The printable makes 9 bookmarks, feel free to print more sets if required. Color the nose yellow and slowly apply a coat of Modge Podge over both the cutout & pasta to make it waterproof. Let dry. It takes about an hour to dry completely. Best to leave them to dry overnight. Alternately, you can use a spray varnish instead of modge podge.
The next day, using a glue gun, secure the pasta bowtie over the hello kitty cutout and then stick this onto a jumbo craft stick.
And our Hello Kitty Craft Bookmark is ready!!
