There is nothing more relaxing that curling up with a hot mug of tea and your favorite book on a cozy, rainy day. We personally believe that it’s the best form of self-care. Losing yourself in another world and feeling as though our own world has melted away is a great way to escape without having to book any vacations or flights. With all this reading, you’ll need some bookmarks to help you keep your place. What better than to make your own? Even better, making a beautiful bookmark is the perfect gift for the bookworm in your life. Here are some simple, fun, and pretty ideas for DIY bookmarks!
Pick out some lovely cardstock with either a pattern, texture, or color that you like and cut them out in any way you please. Geometric cut outs are always a great choice and leave you with professional and chic looking bookmarks. You can punch a hole and add in a tassel at the top for an extra polished look.
For those aiming for a minimalist, modern, chic, and upscale look, you can always opt for a brass clip. This will keep your book in pristine shape, as there will be zero chance of color transfer or pages sticking to this book mark. This also makes for a fantastic gift option.
Lightsaber Popsicle Stick Bookmarks
These are a double win for those with kids: you get a fun craft project out of it and it will encourage the kids to read more books! This are so simple to make. Simply take some popsicle sticks and color them using any medium you choose: markers, paint, or our personal favorite: glitter paint. No Star Wars fans in the house? You can adapt these to anything else you’d like!
DIY Tassel Bookmarks
Another fantastic project idea is making your own tassels, which is very relaxing and fun to do. To take it to the next level, you can even create double-layers with two-tiered tassels. Try saying that five times fast! Add fabric as the actual bookmark. Choose a matching color or a totally different pattern for some nice contrast.
Faux Leather Bookmarks
You can create these luxurious and elegant bookmarks with polymer clay! No need to find real leather for this one. You can easily create that leather look and even stamp in letters to personalize the bookmarks. Once you’re done creating the desired look, you just need to bake them until they set.
