I have a bad habit of bending the spine flat to leave my book face down and mark the page I’m on. I know that’s not good for the book and I frequently lose my place when someone moves the book and closes it. I decided that it was time to make some pretty bookmarks to hold my page instead.
Paint Chip Bookmarks DIY
I have a stack of paint chips leftover from a painting project so I thought they would make a nice background for a bookmark. I just adhered them to a piece of cardstock and then stamped a design on the front of the paint chip. I used a pretty ribbon scrap instead of a tassel at the end. I thought it was pretty neat that the color I chose was for the paint color “Fluttering Monarch” and I stamped butterflies on it.
- Paint chip color strips
- Hole punch
- Glue stick
- Scrap book paper that matches the paint chip strip
- Scraps of ribbon or yarn
- Rubber stamps
- Ink pad
- Cut the scrap book paper so that it is just a tiny bit larger than the paint chip strip – all the way around
- Stamp the design you’ve chosen on the paint chip strip and allow to dry completely
- Glue it to the scrap book paper, centering it carefully
- Punch a hole in the top
- Tie yarn or ribbon scraps at the top of the bookmark using the hole you just punched
How do you mark your page in your favorite book?
