As you know you we are bookmark MAD here on Red Ted Art. We love bookmarks, because they are a (usually) quite simple to make, there are so many different bookmark designs you can create, they are practical and useful and they also make great little gifts. They are also a fun classroom activity for World Book Day or International Book Giving day (or anytime you give someone a book!!).
Bookmarks are a great little craft to fill 5 – 10 minutes here or there – whether in class, at home or during the looong summer holidays. They are perfect for bookworms and great for middle school and marking all your relevant study pages. Boomarks are simply FUN.
So, although we have a rather extensive and ecclectic range of Easy Corner Bookmark Designs for you to browse, I wanted to have a specific section dedicated to “other” Creative DIY Bookmark Ideas.
Though of course paper bookmark Ideas rock, there are so many different ways to make bookmarks – from paper clip bookmark ideas, to knitted bookmark ideas, to pom pom bookmark ideas.. or combining bookmarks with favourite photographs or topical themes. So here we go… MORE of our favourite Red Ted Art DIY Bookmark Ideas JUST FOR YOU!!!
Whilst on the topic of School Supplies and “Stationery”, you may also LOVE our Pencil Holder Crafts – quick and easy and a great way to organise your desk!
As with many of our “collections”, do bookmark (hehehe get it) this page, and be sure to come back in future, as we update and add to this regularly!! More ideas JUST FOR YOU!
