Christmas Countdown: Christmas is just 13 weeks away!
I don't know why, but we never seem to have any bookmarks in our house. This is particularly odd because Jason and I are avid readers. Of all the homemade bookmark ideas I've seen and tried, this one is one of my all-time favorites. It's cheap (practically free!) and incredibly easy. I made five bookmarks in about five minutes.
Here's what you need to make card bookmarks:
- Cards you've received in the mail, such as Christmas cards, birthday cards, etc.
- A hole punch
Here's how you make card bookmarks:
- Pick out cards to use for this project. You'll want to choose cards that have an image that would be easy to cut out or be fitting as a bookmark. Here's the pile of cards I chose from:
- Using your scissors, cut out images from the cards.
- Punch a hole near the top of each card piece you've cut.
- Cut a piece of ribbon. Mine were about 10 inches long, but I cut extra. You could choose to cut 6 inches or so if you're wanting to conserve ribbon as much as possible.
- Put both ends of the ribbon through the hole and loop the ribbon back through on itself to make a knot. Cut off any extra ribbon.
