These are super easy to make...I cut scraps of fabric at varying lengths and widths. Before cutting the fabric see what you prefer...long, short, thin, thick, etc.
We chose to sew the fabric together. You are welcome to try a glue gun or fabric glue to keep the fabric together. We just wanted that handmade look and for my daughter to use her new sewing skills. To sew we put the wrong sides of the fabric together, even at the top, and placed it on the sewing machine leaving just enough for the paperclip to slide through the hole and to move the fabric to the top of the paperclip. You can then give each bookmark it's very own personality as you can see in the example below...
How easy is that? Easy.
We also gave her teacher a handmade card. I liked this quote, "A good teacher is like a candle-it consumes itself to light the way for others." and I wanted to incorporate it in the card somehow. So, I took this picture of a candle and added the quote. We then taped the card to cardstock that we folded in half. We're all about simple and easy things around here lately. If you'd like to use the photo for a card or whatever you need...feel free.
The link to download the candle photo with quote is here.
Enjoy and summer here we come!
