This time of year, there is just something special about snuggling up in front of the fireplace with a cup of coffee, warm blanket and book that brings so much comfort. Winter is a wonderful time to get lost in a great read. I decided this would be the perfect time to make some fun handmade bookmarks to add to the moment.
This handmade bookmark is a simple project that can easily be done in 10-15 minutes.
-card stock (I used embellished manila folders)
-cardboard measuring 3.5 inches wide or other hard surface to assist with making the tassel
-glue or Mod Podge
Steps for tassle:
1) Wrap yarn of choice around the cardboard approximately 4o-50 times and cut excess yarn.
Steps for handmade bookmark:
1) Cut card stock to 3 x 6″. I actually wanted my bookmarks a little thicker than card stock, so I cut the desired size from a manila folder, leaving the bottom attached at the fold. Then, I glued the insides together to give it a little more bulk. In lieu of glue, you could use Mod Podge. Keep in mind you could also glue or Mod Podge two equal sized pieces of card stock together for a bulkier bookmark.
That’s it! So easy, but very cute. These handmade bookmarks would be great for a teacher gift or a gift to a friend that loves to read.
Leave me a note!
Have a great day,
