DIY Watercolor Bookmarks

The perfect gift for a little one to make and gift to their grandmothers this mother’s day.


I love the bookmarks because they are easy, fun to make and useful!

What You’ll Need:

  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolor paint
  • Water
  • Twine
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Paper cutter (optional)
  • An adorable little one

Tear off a piece of paper and let your little one go to it.

Once the masterpiece is finished (and dry) now you can make it into bookmarks!

Cut the paper into strips. I made mine 2 x 6 inches.

You could technically stop at this step. But let’s make some tassels, shall we?

Punch a hole toward the top of the bookmark.

Cut a few pieces of twine and loop them through. You can go the knot route, or what I like to call the camera strap loop (fold the strings in half and stick the fold through the hole. Follow through with the end of the twine)

It looks a little like this.

Trim up the twine. And you’re done! You could also laminate the bookmark so they last longer and then punch the hole etc.

 Stick them in a book and you have a great gift for mom/grandma!
