Craft: Bookends

This craft idea for bookends is fun and easy to make. These bookends will help you keep your books organized on your desk, shelf or night table. Have fun making this craft idea for kids.

What you need:

shoe box
scissors
pencil
ruler
tape or glue
markers, wrapping paper, paint or wallpaper remnants

What you do:

1. You do not need the lid of the box to make this craft. Cut away one of the long sides of the box.
 
2. With the cut away side of the box facing you, mark the center of the opposite long side using the ruler.
 
3. Draw a line from the center mark straight towards you. Draw another line from the left top corner to your center mark and then one from the right top corner to your center mark.
 
Your box should have these markings.
 
4. Cut along the lines you have drawn so that you have two bookends. (See below)
