DIY Bookmarks

Hey all, today I spent a couple of hours making my own bookmarks and I thought they would be the perfect DIY. I think they would make perfect presents to give alongside a book, or just to use yourself. They are really easy and quick to make. So here we go, DIY Bookmarks.

Things you will need:

  • Coloured paper/card
  • Plain paper/card
  • Ribbon
  • Washi tape
  • Glue
  • Pen

Step 1 –

The first step is to cut out your desired size of bookmark from your coloured paper. Once you have done this punch a hole in the top of the paper.

Step 2 –

The next step is to cut out a rectangle just a little smaller than the bookmark. This is where you will write your quote. Once you have your desired size of paper, choose the perfect quote and write it on. I chose a quote from my favourite book Room.

Step 3 –

The next step is to stick the quote onto your bookmark.

Step 4 –

This is the final step. Cut a strip of ribbon, put it through the hole you punched earlier and tie a note. Pull it tight and there you have it your own DIY Bookmark. As simple as that.

Alternatives –

Instead of using coloured paper/card, you can used plain and make it your own. I did this by adding washi tape to the top and bottom of the bookmark. Then wrote my quote on the paper/card.
