Hi there! I have taken a little break from my holiday crafting and have made this cute little magnetic bookmark to share with you today. My daughter has been reading a TON lately so I decided to make a little something fun for her and came up with this...
This is SUPER simple to make and cute, cute, cute! I cut a piece of patterned paper to about 2 1/4" by 6", and folded it in half to make the bookmark. I decorated the front with a couple of stamps from Vintage October: Winter Pocket Fillers Stamp Set (SP & Company). The sentiment is stamped in black, directly on the bookmark. The heart is stamped on a separate piece of patterned paper that I cut out and glued on. Originally I was going to go with a 3 heart design, but I liked the CAS look of the single heart.
I didn't add any dimension to this at all, because it has to fit in a book. So, keep that in mind when you make them.
Here is a shot of the inside...
I cut two small strips of magnet from some of those business card magnets that you can pick up at the store. They have a sticky back, so all you do is peel it and stick it. Easy peasy! The bookmark will slide over the page of the book, and the magnets just help hold it in place.
OK, so maybe not a complete holiday break...these would make great gifts for the readers you know!
