Make a bookmark for your favorite bookworm, or to accompany any book you give as a gift. They are fun (and satisfying) to make because they take little time and help use up any scraps you may have lying around. Get inspired by these ideas and incorporate other crafts you have made. You can also create your own unique bookmarks with your reader in mind.
Little windows within your bookmark are great for little messages, old book pages, sheet music, fabric, and more! Cut out shapes that work well with the paper’s pattern, or create a theme to coordinate with your gift wrap.
I love corner bookmarks for something different. This one is made with washi tape but you can let the paper or recipient’s interests inspire your work.
This is a lovely idea for people you love. A little reminder never hurts. I would like to make some with stars for the Superstars in my life. Get creative with the messages you’ll write on yours.
Cat lovers will purr for this adorable wire masterpiece. You can create your own custom shapes, as long as you have a coil inside it will make a great bookmark. This is really great for folks who carry their book everywhere.
Paint chips are really fun right now because ombre is such a hit and they otherwise only serve a short-term purpose. Keep your paint chips after you’ve made your paint choices and whip up some bookmarks in no time. Use stencils or stamps to design yours if freehand isn’t your forte.
Make an adorable bow tie for a gentleman or a sweet bow for a lady with this fantastic idea! If you carry your books around then you may have lost your place when a bookmark slips out of place. Bookmarks that wrap around are great for keeping your place in a good book or daily journal.
The tea-lover in your life will adore this book mark idea. Tassels are so 2014 anyway.
Make any number of sweet animals with this technique. Little paws or hooves will happily hold your place for you, and look cute doing it.
I wish I had thought of this years ago! Magnets are your best bet if you struggle with sneaky, slippery bookmark escape artists. Seen here made with washi tape, and paper or fabric creation with a magnet will work wonderfully.
A lover of classic literature will be speechless if you present them with this beautiful piece of art. That is, after you let them know that you salvaged it from a damaged book that needed upcycling.
