Hi there, everyone! Janet Long here with a quick idea you could do now, or after the holidays if you don’t have time beforehand. I can’t believe that Christmas is in just two days.
I have alway loved reading. I can still imagine the feeling I used to get when I would receive a new Nancy Drew book for Christmas. There is nothing like snuggling up and reading a good book when it is cold outside. I don’t quite understand why, but I love it when I finish up reading for a little bit and place a cute bookmark in my book to hold my page. Every time that I do it I get this little thrill. I am sure you all probably think I am really silly and well, I probably am. Anyway, these magnetic bookmarks are especially fun because not only are they a bookmark, but the also contain magnets. I have always had a fascination with magnets, too. I love my magnetic pin cushion and my various magnet boards around the house and now I love these little magnetic bookmarks. They make the sweetest little click when I put them in my book. I made a bunch for my book club and they all love them, too.
I was totally inspired to do this project by this project by artmidget. Erica always has such great style and fun ideas. You can see her bookmarks here:
When I make my bookmarks, I do it on a document that is 8 X 10.5. I place six bookmarks on a page. Here is a sample of what my page looks like after it is printed. On this particular bookmark I stuck wiggly eyes on the owls with glue dots and that made them extra cute.
I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and that if you don’t have time to make these bookmarks before Christmas, January would be a perfect time to do so. Then you can have as much fun as I do when you finish up your reading and place one of these in your book.
