Planner Progect #1 : Kawaii Neko Bookmark Card DIY


Recently I found this creative ideas on a fantastic site: http://kao-ani.com/
This DIY project is quite easy and will probably take you about 20~30 minutes to make. The most difficult part is cutting nicely along the lines of the paws, but I might have had too much caffeine while doing so…

You can send the card to a loved one, or keep it all to yourself and use it as a bookmark!


You will need:
  • White sturdy paper or thin card (A5 or A4 size)
  • Printer
  • Pair of scissors
  • Exacto knife + cutting mat
  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Pen
  1. Download the Cat Bookmark Card Template.
  2. Print the template on some sturdy white or light colored paper, set the print size to A5 (or A4).
  3. Cut out the cat and tail. You can use a ruler to cut the straight parts with a knife.
  4. Use an exacto knife (and steady hand ^_^) to cut along the lines of the paws.
  5. Fold the tail about 1cm from the top and glue it to the body. A piece of washi tape can help to secure it.
  6. Cut out the heart and write a message on the back for the lucky receiver.

Make sure that the tail sticks out a little, like pictured above. This way the cat can stand on it’s own while holding your cute message.




Another way to use your cat card is as a bookmark! It will peek out above your book, while holding on to your most recent or favorite page.

I hope you liked this craft! I’m still learning how to work with Illustrator, so this project was a good way to get some practice. You can expect more cute crafts on kao-ani.com in the near future
