Love to read? Always out of bookmarks? Hate to dog-ear pages? Hate to use pieces of paper? Are you fastidious about your bookmarks?
For an easy way to have tons of bookmarks available when you need them set up a space near your reading nook – the space could be a drawer, an envelope, any space that will be near your reading area. Next, go thru your old birthday cards, christmas cards … Select the ones that you love. Cut the front and toss the rest. Use the pretty side of the card as a bookmark. Don’t forget to use this year holiday cards for that purpose.
Another idea is to save the ribbon from gifts and use it as a bookmark. Other cool ideas are favorite pictures of your pets, the spines of old books, a deck of cards, tiny calendars, pretty vintage seed packets …
For an elegant homemade bookmark, buy old leather books at a flea market, take the spines and cut them out. Insert a ribbon at the top and there you have it – a unique bookmark with an old flair.
