Super Bookmark Fun Time

Not only are bookmarks useful, they are a great small gift idea. It's so easy to add a bookmark to a birthday card, or to pop a bookmark into a gift basket. It adds that little something extra when you give a money gift, or need something small to round out a present.

Bookmarks are also very easy/cheap to make, and you can personalize the crap out of them (not real poop, don't put that on your bookmarks... wrong kind of marker).

I'm going to show you how to make a really cute, personalized bookmark. This is a great project for kids and parents to do together, or for twenty-six year old women who like cartoon dogs to pop out of their smutty novels. You know, whatever.

Here's what you need:

Start by drawing your animal (or whatever pattern you've chosen) on the stiff paper. You'll need a bit of blank space under your design and to the sides.

Cut along the bottom of your design, and about halfway up. You want that extra bit on the bottom and sides left attached so that your bookmark will be able to grab onto the page.

From here you can either colour in your design or get a little bit creative. I used cardstock/coloured paper as an overlay and coloured in parts of that to get the look I wanted.

If anyone tries this out I'd love to see what you come up with! Send me a picture or link of your finished product :)

Happy reading!

Hugs and poops,
