Diy Paper Bookmarks
Enjoy! Now, back to diy paper bookmarks. Here’s a simple but great crafting idea for the whole family, especially if you have a kid that loves books and has always more than 3 ‘in progress’. Well, in this case you occasionally need a bunch of bookmarks to keep up!
And they can always give them as little diy presents to their friends.
Let’s make paper bookmarks! Here’s the super easy tutorial.
- mid-sized packaging boxes or cardboard (for the base)
- hole punch
- glue, glitter glue
- colored crafting paper
- used gift packaging paper or other pieces of paper with animals/characters/etc
Instead of used gift wrapping paper, you can use stickers, or any other printed materials.
Since we are in the basic literacy phase (aka getting to know the individual letters), the kid enjoyed allocating the initial letters to each of the bookmarks. Each letter here stands for one of his friends’ names. They made great little gifts!
With the help of scissors, glitter and glue, these DIY bookmarks can be made in no time. Kids will gladly jump in and help. Variations welcome!
After you’ve glued everything you wanted, punch a hole in the bottom part of the bookmark, then thread a ribbon through the hole. (By the way: a great fine motor activity for prescholers!)
I admit to have jumped in when the glitter-attaching activity was about to spread to a whole new part of the dining crafting room. But other than that, I hope to have left enough room for creativity.
And these diy paper bookmarks would make a great teacher appreciation gift too, don’t you think?
