Music Bookmark Craft

This music bookmark craft uses an old sheet of music and is a fun easy cutting skills craft that kids can give as a gift or can use in their music books! We actually have another fun soap shaving bookmark craft too, if you would like to check out that craft that builds skills as well!

You’ll need just a few materials to make this music bookmark craft:

  • Glue
  • Scissors

To make the music bookmarks

This musical craft is easy to make, which makes it an easy scissor skills craft for kids.

  1. Cut the sheet music along the space between each staff.  You’ll end up with several strips of music notes.  
  2. Cut the red card stock into heart shapes.  
  3. Glue the hearts to one end of the music strips.  As easy as that, your music bookmarks are done!

We made these bookmarks at the same time we made our DIY bottle xylophone, which is why the bottle of Coke is in the picture below.

You could cut any shape and glue it at the top of the craft. We went with a heart because of our love of all things music.

Heart and music gift that kids can make.

This bookmark would make a great music gift that kids can make for music teachers!
