How we did it:

Materials List

  1. card stock paper
  2. scissors
  3. watercolor paint
  4. paint brush
  5. contact paper
  6. hole punch
  7. yarn
  1. I cut the card stock into bookmark-sized rectangles and let the kids get to work on adding the color.

  2. They used watercolor paints to dress these up. Any kind of paint or even stickers would work well for these fun bookmarks.

  3. Once they were completely dry I laid them onto a large sheet of contact paper and covered them with another sheet. This will make our bookmarks durable, giving it an almost laminated finish.

  4. My daughter loves the hole punch and was happy to help with this step to make room for our yarn.

  5. She threaded yarn in each and tied it into a knot.

  6. Pretty easy and the result was beautiful. These would even make a great party craft or favor....don't you think?
