I think the picture will help explain, I hope.
You can use just about any paper or cloth item to make a nice personalized bookmark like this. How about a piece of fabric from a favorite dress, shirt, pants, blanket, or some wrapping paper, a portion of a greeting card, or your baby's first haircut clippings on a piece of blue or pink paper. Hey, the sky is the limit!
For those of you who remember my request and helped me last year about ideas regarding my childhood blanket, well, guess what, I have a bonus childhood blanket bookmark now. My only word of warning is to practice with something you aren't worried about losing/messing up first, LOL!
Have fun and please share a photo of your creation if you use this idea.

Good idea. Because I read in bed laying on side my pages tend to fold over on themselves. Drove me nuts so after a long while I thought to use a thin hair elastic band. I slip it over the side I haven't yet read, (from top to bottom and include cover) and just slip my fingers under it to turn pages. Annoyance gone.
