DIY: Mystic Messenger-inspired Felt Bookmarks


I admit. I am a Mystic Messenger trash. I open the app whenever there's a chat room open to interact with the guys. I've been flooding my Facebook timeline with Mystic Messenger screen caps and fanarts and I actually don't know if my blogger friends are annoyed with the things I share but I really don't mind at all. And since I am completely addicted to this game, I decided to make a DIY inspired from the Korean Mobile Visual Novel, Mystic Messenger.


This DIY project is made of felt fabric and popsicle sticks. I have lots of felt fabric on one of my storage boxes so I decided to find a way to use them. Basically, my pattern for the characters (ZEN, Jumin Han, 707, Yoosung and Jaehee Kang) were the emojis that is being used by them at the game's chat room:

Without further ado, here are the materials I used for this DIY Mystic Messenger-inspired felt bookmarks:
  • Felt fabric (colors: beige/flesh, red, black, violet, brown, yellow, green, white, gray)
  • Assorted color of popsicle sticks (colors: red, violet, plain, green, yellow)
  • Glue gun and glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes (This is optional. Feel free to use any materials on how the way you like the eyes look).
Procedure:

You might want to check out this short video on how I made my DIY Mystic Messenger-inspired felt bookmarks:


  1. Draw your pattern first. As I mentioned above, I only used the emojis above and draw them in a scratch paper/draw directly on the felt fabric. Draw and cut five faces from the beige colored felt then the hair styles of each character.
  2. Once done, attach the faces to the hair style using the glue gun.
  3. Add more details such as eye glasses (for 707 and Jaehee) and hair clips (for Yoosung).
  4. I added the googly eyes.
  5. For the popsicle sticks, feel free to add some details to it. For this project, I draw small hearts and painted them white. Now attach the the faces to the popsicle sticks.
  6. And you are done!
This project is quite complicated because of the hair details of each character. But it is actually worth it. I like the results! I actually can't wait to show it to my friends who are also playing the game (might as well give some of the characters to them... or maybe not!)
