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.So, 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.
Finally, 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.
