round book page bookmarkI can't think of a more fitting way to use the pages of an old discarded book than to make bookmarks out of them. This is just one of many ways you can do this.


Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 page from an old book
  • paper glue
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 1 hole punch
  • 1 gift tag or luggage label
  • 1 pretty ink stamp
  • 1 short length of cord or ribbon
