Bookmarks using the corner(s) of an envelope.

Sometimes I discover an idea and recreate it, and have so much fun with it that I want to make tons more. In this case, I might actually do that since it’s a bookmark made from an envelope and bookmarks never take up a lot of room.

I saw the idea on a couple blogs, I probably found them through Pinterest. One was a monster and the other said “You fell asleep here.” I took the ideas and made them my own, adding a tail to one and “hair” to the other so something sticks out of the books when they’re closed. I almost put googly eyes on the monster but immediately decided I’d better not, considering they’d obviously end up denting the books.

I can already tell I’ll end up having a big collection of these, I’m always reading multiple books at the same time and these are super easy to make, all you really need is a glue stick and scissors. The envelopes can be from junk mail, and you can glue pretty much anything to the edges or corner to have something stick out of the book. This would probably be a fun craft to do with older children who enjoy reading, I’m always keeping an eye open for crafts for kids since so many of my friends have children.
