When my husband and I were preparing for our vacation to Mexico earlier this year, we went a little bit overboard buying books. Both of us were so excited to have time to sit down and enjoy some new reading material. I think between the two of us we bought 10 books!! Here are a few that I bought (my husband bought a series of zombie novels).
The Girl on the Train Currently making my way through this one and so far it’s great!
Yes Please! I don’t generally like reading celebrities’ books, but this one was very engaging and funny.
The Glass Castle I cannot rave enough about this book! I finished it on the 2nd day of vacation because I couldn’t put it down.
I needed a change from forcing my way through the Game of Throne’s series (which I’m only half way through the 2nd book). I know, I know, I am WAY behind on current books, but I never have time to sit down and enjoy them. While I did finish 2 on vacation, I am still have quite a few left.
But, with all of that reading material, I needed some a way of holding my page. Can you believe I had no bookmarks at all?! Embarrassingly, I’ve been using a post it note as my bookmark for longer than I care to admit.
That’s when I had the bright idea to make these cute Washi Tape bookmarks! They were quick, easy, and the design possibilities are endless.
How to make Washi Tape Bookmarks
Cardstock (I used white)
Yarn, ribbon, or twine
- First I started by cutting the cardstock to 1 1/2″ wide by 6″ long. You can change the size of yours if you wish, but this size works pretty universally.
- Lay Washi Tape out on the cardstock in the pattern you want. For 2 of mine, I did horizontal stripes and wrapped the tape around to the backside as well. That way my bookmarks are double-sided.
- Trim off excess tape.
- Punch a hole in the top of the book mark.
- Tie on ribbon, yarn or twine of choice as shown below.
And that’s it!
See how easy these Washi Tape bookmarks were to make? These would make great teacher gifts, or a great accessory to go with a book gift.
