Now is a great time to make some special bookmarks for the school-age kids and grandkids. And we could have fun making them together!
For long-distance parents/grandparents, we could make the bookmarks ourselves and mail them … or send materials to the kids so they can personalize their own. And we could still make them together … via Skype!
It’s easy to make a bookmark. Just:
1) Cut cardstock into bookmark size (approximately 1 ½” by 5).
2) Decorate the paper with sketches, pictures, Bible verses, stickers, etc.
3) Cover with clear contact paper or have the bookmarks laminated at a teacher-supply store.
4) Punch a hole in the top and loop a ribbon or tassel through it.
That’s all there is to it. You’ve created a tangible reminder to your special child of your love.
What are some ideas that you have for making creative bookmarks?
