Hi everyone! Guess what? This weekend, I finally found the time to go through and reorganize my craft boxes! In the process, I discovered some long-forgotten materials, with which I created a little bookmark for my journal. So, here it is! A fun and easy DIY bookmark to assist your summer reading. Enjoy!
- Cardstock paper
- Double-sided tape/glue
- Hole punch
- Cut out the base for your bookmark. I found that 6″ by 2″ dimensions work pretty well, but it is totally up to you to decide how big or small you want it.
- Choose a few pages from an old magazine or newspaper, and cut some strips. (You probably won’t need many; it depends on the size of your bookmark.) Use double-sided tape or glue to layer them on! Personally, I love double-sided tape—you can always count on it to be effective without being gooey.
- Punch a hole near the top of your bookmark for a tassel.
- To create a simple “tassel,” use approximately 3.5″ of white friendship bracelet thread to tie a lanyard hitch. You can also tie beads on the ends to add a personal touch to the bookmark.
- Finally, cut out two squares the width of your bookmark and write an inspirational quote or phrase on each square. Tape or glue the squares on either side of your bookmark!
I love this DIY because it is so simple and quick. Let me know how it goes!
