With summer vacation just around the corner, kids will once again have a lot of free time on their hands. That means time for outdoor fun, playing with friends, summer sports teams, and in some cases (especially on those rainy afternoons), time to tackle their summer reading list.
But before they dive into a towering stack of must-reads, make some time with your little bookworm to craft a custom bookmark (or two!). Created by Tally at I Could Make That, these monster bookmarks instantly grabbed our attention, thanks to their bright, quirky design. These definitely aren’t your run-of-the-mill tasseled placeholders!
What you’ll need:
• Decorative cardstock paper (or combination of plain cardstock and fancy lighter-weight paper)
Tally shares the full instructions for her Page Corner Bookmarks over on her site, along with photos to help guide you through the process. We love that Tally has included a grown-up version of these bookmarks, too, so older kids (and parents!) can create some beautiful homemade bookmarks that any bookworm would be proud to show off.
