My Favorite DIY Bookmarks

A few days ago my boyfriend, Brandon, brought me some Halloween themed bookmarks from the Middle School library he works at and we had a brief conversation about how bookmarks are basically life! I have about a hundred and I actually use all of them. I usually like to make my own bookmarks out of pretty scrapbook paper, old wallpaper, greeting cards, magazines, etc. but I have come across some really fun DIY bookmarks while scouring Pinterest for book related crafts and I wanted to share my favorites with you! If you are a reader, you need a bookmark! So choose a few to make and spend this weekend crafting, while making something that will get a lot of use!

Do you have a ton of Washi Tape in your craft bag that hasn’t been used in months? Well I certainly do! Check out these cool Washi Tape bookmarks from The Kolb Corner!

This is one of my favorites! We are always withdrawing damaged or old books from our library collection and I’m always trying to find ways to utilize them for crafts. Go to your local library book sale and buy a few old hardbacks and make these beautiful bookmarks from Totally Green Crafts!

I love how creative these Popsicle Stick bookmarks from Rock Paper Feather are! You really can decorate these any way you like and they are way more fun than ordinary paper.
