You know all those beautiful Birthday Cards, Christmas Cards, and Note Cards you receive throughout the year?
Don’t throw them away ~ turn them into Homemade Bookmarks!
My sweet Aunt Patty shared this tip with me a few years back, and I must say… we’ve got some pretty cute bookmarks holding places in our books right now!
Now, go gather up some cards you’ve recently received…
Then grab some scissors, a 3-hole punch and ribbons.
Cut out long thin sections of the card, while keeping the picture in tact.
Punch a hole at the top, and loop a ribbon through.
Trim the edges of the ribbon at a slight angle.
Round the corners of the bookmark if desired, using scissors or corner rounder.
There you have it… quick, easy, and adorable bookmarks!
Keep some for yourself and give some as thrifty gifts!
This is a fun & simple craft for the kids, too!
