I’m a day behind on the Iron Craft Challenge this week (because it was book launch day yesterday), but the idea was to create something using words.
The first thing I came up with was making a bookmark, because it seems like we always need more of those.
It’s super easy to do with whatever paper, stamps, markers and things you have around. This would be a great one to have the kids try, too. Just set out some pre-cut bookmark shapes, a bunch of paper, markers, stamps and glue or tape and see what they come up with.
What You’ll Need
- cardstock or heavy paper for the base of the bookmark (I used a page pulled out of an old book)
- other papers or flat items (mine were scrapbook papers)
- glue stick or adhesive roller
- rubber stamps and ink (optional)
- gel or other markers (optional)
Cut the base paper to the size desired. I used a large bookmark as a template for mine.
Cut or rip other paper and glue or tape it as you like. At first I thought I liked the word moon (the girl is very into space) so I had the flower in the opposite corner, but I like it better here.
Find a book and start reading.
Do you use bookmarks? Do you make them or buy them or just use random pieces of paper? This is a super easy project you really should try to make your reading experience a little prettier.
