DIY: The Avengers Bookmarks: For superhero readers!

The Avengers are the new muse for superhero fans. To celebrate the success of the mind-gripping movie, here is a DIY Avengers Bookmark Craft Project. Amanda of Crafts by Amanda has come up with a cute project, which is beautiful and cheap. To make these cute bookmarks, you will require 3 jumbo craft sticks/popsicle sticks, White paint pen, Black Sharpie, Black ballpoint pen, Clear paintable sealer or Mod Podge, and Paintbrushes. You will also require certain paint colors like red, gold, blue, green, purple, white, black, and peach. To get started, draw the Superhero characters on jumbo craft sticks or Popsicle sticks. You can free hand the characters, or use the pattern provided here.
Paint certain areas first, for Iron Man, paint the gold sections, on The Hulk paint the green, and on Captain American paint the peach and the white section where the red & white stripes go.
Keep them off dry, and then paint purple on The Hulk and black for his hair. Paint the red stripes on Captain America, and paint the red section and the red helmet piece on Iron Man. When the stripes on Captain America have dried, paint the blue areas. Once done, use white paint to add the Hulk’s mouth and eyes; Iron Man’s Unibeam (circle) and eyes, and Captain America – Star, “A” on the helmet and eyes. Use a black Sharpie to add The Hulk’s eyebrows and pupils. A ballpoint pen works well for the mouth outline and the teeth. A black Sharpie can be used to add Iron Man’s mouth and Captain America’s pupils. Then, just wait for it to dry well, and add a coat of paintable sealer or Mod Podge to give them a protective coating. Let dry overnight, and you are all set to read with your favorite Superhero!
