I love the bookmarks because they are easy, fun to make and useful!
What You’ll Need:
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolor paint
- 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!
