DIY bookmark 3 different ways

Hello everyone! Today I will be sharing with you how to make bookmark in three different ways. This is another good back to school project, made from recycled materials you already have in the house. You don’t have to spend so much money to buy bookmarks, customize yours today!

The first bookmark is made from a ribbon and charm; the ribbon is recycled from my daughter’s closet, and the charm is from an old necklace. It is best with a book that you read constantly; I used it for my daily devotional. The second is made with paper, pom poms and some stickers. The third one is a bow bookmark, perfect for the corners of any book.

Materials for making bookmark

  • A4 paper
  • Long piece of ribbon
  • Jewelry charm
  • Stickers
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pom poms


Ribbon and charm bookmark

Measure the length of ribbon with book, and decide whether you want a long or short bookmarkBookmark

Glue the ribbon together with the charm. Now glue the ribbon and charm to the top of the book. 



Paper and sticker bookmark

Cut the paper 2 x 6 inches. I glued pompoms to the top, so that the bookmark won’t get lost in the middle of any book. You can also punch top of the paper and tie a ribbon. The sticker added some color to this project. 


Bow bookmark

Draw three squares 3 x 3 inches on a paper. Draw a line to divide two of the squares into half.

Cut out paper on the drawn lines

Fold in the two pointed ends and glue in place. Your paper should be a square, now set this aside.  

Cut another paper 1.5 x 6 inches. Glue the two ends of paper at the middle.

Cut a little curve from the top of the paper, and open to form a bow. Glue a small piece of paper to the middle, and then glue bow to the square you prepared earlier.
