Today I’m sharing DIY Bookmarks & 3 Clever Repurposed Book Ideas for winter indoor projects.
I enjoy reading but I absolutely love books in general! I learned to love books as a child when my parents gave me Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women for Christmas when I was about 9 years old. It remains my all time favorite book.
Reading is knowledge
DIY bookmarks are a fun project for adults and children especially during the winter months while shut inside. The children may be a little more likely to enjoy reading when they get to use the fun bookmarks they made themselves.
These can be made with only paper, scissors, glue, pencil and a few decorative pieces of your choice. A nice twist to this page corner bookmark is to make them with any decorative paper, without the monster eyes. Be creative!
I really like the possibilities of the Hairband bookmarker, so many colors and patterns to choose from! This simple tutorial is shared by Mish Mashed Mama. There is sewing involved but only a couple of stitches by hand.
