For Handmade Monthly in September I made some bookmarks on Canva. But it's not getting posted until October, because well life! I'm sorry! But I do have it here for you and I think it turned out pretty cute!
The fun thing about this DIY is even if you feel like you are not good at crafting or artsy things, it's actually easy to get a good result. And I think the bookmark would make a great gift for the book lovers in your life. Or a fun thing to give to your book club members. It's an inexpensive gift that can be personalized a million different ways, and surely loved by the voracious readers in your life.
Making a Bookmark on Canva
We aren't sponsored or endorsed by Canva in any way but I like to use their site to design little things like this because it's easy and I like the variety of templates, stickers, and fonts. I love how things are customizable without being difficult to use. To help you out I have made this video describing how to make a bookmark on Canva.
I only used pictures and digital stickers on my bookmark, but it would also be cute to have a favorite book quote or reference to a favorite book on the bookmark as well.
Once your bookmark is finished being created you can print it off on cardstock, photo paper, or regular paper, and get it laminated. I actually used regular paper and clear packing tape to laminate mine! I think it turned out pretty cute. I love how Sofía's cute little face is peeking out of the top of the book.
If you're going to print it at home you will want a good printer. I love my Canon because it does wireless printing from the computer and my phone. AND it does automatic double sided printing, so I don't have to go figure out which way to reload the paper in to make sure it prints correctly on both sides. It's my favorite feature.
So hopefully you found this tutorial helpful and a great way to make your book gift giving a little more personal this year!
PS for What to Read Wednesday, consider this your recommendation for A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. It's an amazing book and a classic for a reason, you will not regret this read!
