Use your Cricut to create these cute popsicle bookmarks! An easy summer project that saves your spot in your favorite summer beach read.
Welcome to Day 14 of the 15 Days of Cricut Summer Fun!
We’re almost to the end of this Cricut Summer Fun series and today we’re crafting bookmarks! I was always the kid who had her nose in a book all summer, sitting in the shade. If you also love summer reading, this adorable popsicle bookmarks are an easy craft that will help you keep your place in your favorite beach read!
If you’d like to get this series in an ebook format PLUS all of the SVGs needed to make all 15 projects check out the 15 Days of Cricut Summer Fun eBook Bundle!
I’m using paper for the popsicle sticks for these bookmarks. If you want, you can use real popsicle sticks! You will need a stronger glue than a glue stick—a thin coat of quick-dry tacky glue should do the trick.
This project is small enough to cut on your Cricut Joy, though of course you can also cut these bookmarks with your Cricut Maker 3, Cricut Explore 3, Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore Air 2, or other Cricut Explore machine. Need help using your Cricut? Check out my Cricut Basics eBook!

Popsicle Bookmark Instructions
Upload the Popsicle File to Cricut Design Space
We will start by uploading the SVG file to Cricut Design Space (see Uploading SVG Files to Cricut Design Space if you need help).
There are enough pieces to make both sides of the popsicle. For the popsicle with the bite, the back piece has been reversed so that you can cut it from the same piece of paper as the front piece, which is good if you have textured or patterned paper.
You can resize them if you’d like—I made them all 6″ tall, which is about standard for a bookmark.
If you are using wood popsicle sticks instead of brown cardstock, you can click the “eye” next to each popsicle stick piece in the Layers Panel to hide it. That way it won’t cut. Skip this step if you’re cutting the sticks from paper.
That’s it! You’re ready to cut your popsicle bookmarks. Click Make It in the upper right.
Cut Your Cardstock for Your Popsicle Bookmarks
If you have a Cricut Maker 3 or Cricut Explore 3, you’ll see a Mat Selection window. Because we are cutting on cardstock, choose On Mat. If you do not have one of these newer machines, you won’t see this screen.
On the next Prepare Screen, you’ll see all of your images laid out on their respective mats. You can also learn How to Fit More on a Cricut Mat and Save Material if you’d like!
On the Make Screen, you’ll set your material to cardstock. Make sure you have your fine point blade in your machine, insert your mat, and your Cricut will cut your project! Cut all the mats for your popsicles until you have a pile of popsicle puzzle pieces.
Glue Your Popsicle Bookmarks Together
Now we just need to assemble the popsicles. You’ll see that there are two main pieces for each popsicle. Glue these together, sandwiching the popsicle stick (wood or cardstock) between the two to create a “sandwich.”
Then glue on the decorative popsicle layer pieces to create your final popsicle bookmarks!
