- scrapbook paper
- poem/book page
- I also think a picture would work really well here and it'd be super cute! a child's artwork or writing of their own would work as well
- clear contact paper
- scissors & glue (duh!)
- book page/picture to go on inside
- modge podge dimensional magic glue
- hot glue gun
- Cut your scrapbook paper to the size you want
- Glue picture/poem to your bookmark
- Using the same scrapbook paper that I used for my bookmark I created a tab for the bottlecap. I cut a small rectangle, folded it in half and glued it to the bookmark.
- Apply the contact paper to create a protective seal for your bookmark.
- ** Glue the bottlecap onto the bookmark using the tab you just created. Click HERE for a link to my previous post about how to make the bottlecap portion. If you choose not to add the bottlecap, you can simply skip this step and be done!
Like I said before, I think this project would also work well with a small picture or perhaps some hand-drawn artwork. I think it'd be adorable for a Mother's/Father's Day gift if a child were to create some sort of artwork to turn into a bookmark for one (or both!) of their parents. At my school the 3rd graders wrote winter-ish poems, typed them up and created bookmarks for their parents for Christmas/Hanukkah presents. They turned out so cute!
The finished product!
The book page I used inside the bottlecap doesn't necessarily match the scrapbook paper, but I still like it.
Looks adorbs sticking out of a book.
Seriously, how cute is this?
