If you love to read as much as I do then you will know just how important a bookmark is. As a reader you will always want to make sure you to have a bookmark on hand or nearby you when you want to hold a place in your book.
The solution is simple and not to mention fun! These paper bookmarks are easy to put together and can be personalized with your favorite craft paper colors or decorations (think stickers & brads!) .
This super quick and easy DIY project is fun because it is something unique that you can make for yourself or others as gifts! If you are in the middle of a couple of books like me it is always good to have a couple of these handy, so I seem somewhat organized. You could even use these in a book club or group to give to your reading friends.
I don’t want to forget to mention that these are great as a kids craft too! My kids even love making these bookmarks all by themselves (except they will need help with the cutting part) and giving them away to friends. They really are that simple and who knows you may get them excited about reading their next book!
You can use scrapbook paper or card stock for these. I recommended the card stock because they will hold up to use a lot better to daily use. And most local craft stores have quite a bit of different paper designs to pick meaning from your bookmark will truly be unique to you.
If you have 10 minutes or less you can make these bookmarks! Look through the supplies you’ll need to get started today.
