A collection of differently colored bookmarks.This is such a simple technique with amazing results. Both adults and children can have a fun, slightly messy, crazy craft session together - although children may need a bit of guidance and probably some help blowing up the balloon



  • Thin white card or thick paper
  • Childrens' ready mixed paint
  • A balloon
  • A paper plate
  • Scissors
Supplies for making balloon dip bookmarks.


  1. Choose a colour of paint and drop a small blob onto the paper plate
  2. Getting green pain onto a paintbrush.
  3. Add more colours close by and spread the paint out a little
  4. Three different colored daubs of paint.
  5. Blow a little air into the balloon and tie it off. You don't need it blown up big.
  6. A blown up latex balloon.
  7. Dip the balloon into the paint
  8. Dipping the balloon in the paint.

  9. Now use the paint on the balloon to print a colourful circle. The more you press the bigger your circle will be
  10. The paint placed on a piece of white paper.
  11. You may find that you can get up to 4 prints for each dip
  12. A few dots of paint on white paper.
  13. Keep dipping and printing...
  14. Several dots on the white paper.
  15. ...until you have filled the card.
    Be patient now and wait until it is completely dry before you continue
  16. The sheet of paper covered in paint.

  17. Once dry you can cut the card into strips
  18. Cutting a bookmark from the end of the paper.
  19. And for a more professional looking finish, round off the corners
  20. Rounding the edges of the bookmark.
