Bookmarks as Quick Crafts

Often, my quick crafts are for gifts. Although I love giving handmade gifts, I don’t always have the time to spend hours on something, and I know that there are some people who just don’t appreciate all the time and love that goes into a handmade gift.

I know electronic readers are popular nowadays. I’ve had my kindle since Christmas, and even have this blog as well as the other blog set up so that if you have a kindle, so you can subscribe to them and read on the go. However, there is nothing quite like turning the pages on a good book. Which is what makes a good book an awesome gift. Pick up the right book for someone, make one of these fun, quick bookmarks, and you’ll have the perfect combination of handmade and store-bought! Or, if you have no idea what their reading preference is, you could wrap up a gift card to your favorite bookstore with a couple handmade bookmarks.

I’d love to have one of these fun bookmarks munching on a page of my book!

How cute are these paint chip bookmarks from That’s My Story… and I’m sticking to it? This gives me another excuse to collect paint samples from the hardware store!

And these paperclip fabric bookmarks are actually sewn! You can get all the details over at Life Through the Lens, who also shares an awesome printable for a card that any teacher would be touched to open.

Until next time…
