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.

Here is a duct tape book marker my daughter made for me for my reading.
They don't slip out because of the texture, and they are so colorful.
I just love it!
Approximate Time: Less than 10 minutes each.
Trim around the rest of the bookmark strip with the same scissors to "fancy edge" the whole thing.
Open up the bookmark, cut two small rectangles from your sheet of magnetic material, peel of the backing and stick one to each end of the bookmark so when it is closed the magnets will magnetize themselves together - this is the way the bookmark goes around the book page and holds your place.

we made similar ones when I was a kid, but we laminated two pieces of card together so that there was a front and back pattern...I still use some of these for bookmarks. we punched a hole in the end of some of them and threaded ribbon through for tassels.

I am giving books to friends this year for Christmas. While getting out my card holder from last year filled with last years cards a thought came to me to make bookmarks to put inside the books I am giving. I set to work and in no time at all made several beautiful bookmarks. First I sorted through the cards and found the ones that would work.
Next, with a good sharp pair of scissors I cut a strip one to three inches wide from the card I was using. Next, punch a hole through the top and then add a pretty Christmas ribbon, the ribbon I had wasn't narrow enough so I used raffia for the tassel. I belong to a ladies bible study and plan to give them each a bookmark enclosed in their Christmas card.
If I have any leftover cards, I will cut and make package tags from them, which I have done for years. Enjoy using your prior years Christmas cards.
