Cute Inexpensive Bookmarks, Plus Giveaway

I saw these bookmarks on another YouTube channel called Scrapdaworld, and thought it was really fun.

To make the bookmarks, you’ll need elastic cord that I found at Walmart. I found the “clasp free elastics” from the Dollar Tree. You need a book to use as a guide. Pull the elastic around the front cover of a book and pull it tight. Cut it and then take one of the elastics and lay it under the edge of the elastic cord (leaving enough room to pull the cord around the elastic and glue it to itself with hot glue. Make sure the hot glue covers the width of the elastic cord, so the cord doesn’t let go. Pull the cord around the book and attach the other end of the cord. Decorate as you choose.

I made a holder for my bookmark, by cutting a piece of cardboard the size of my book. Then I took an old book page and attached it to the cardboard with tear tape. I used Distress Ink Old Paper and distressed the edges of the page and attached my bookmark to it by wrapping it around and using washi tape to hold it in place.

I want to thank Lindsey for giving me the die set from Lawn Fawn, as she told me if I didn’t have the stamp set, I could share it with others. You have until December 5th at Midnight Eastern time to leave a comment as to why you want the die set. Rich will choose the winner.
