Read books of course!!!
And when you have to go get a glass of water....
You need a bookmark.
So I made these "booky" bookmarks out of... BOOKS!
Step 1: Supplies
An old book (I used the introduction page that just has his short snippet from the book)
Paper or sketchbook
Fancy pens (optional)
Step 2: Which Book?
So for this project use a very old book which you don't really need anymore or, like I did, the introduction page at the beginning of the book which has a short snippet of the story.
I use the introduction page from "Bridge to Terabithia" one of my favorite books.
Step 3: What Shape?
So I sketched a rough drawing of Jesse swinging on a rope.
Then, I cut it out and put it over my book page.
I traced the shape, then cut out the book shape.
Now I had my booky part!!!
Step 4: Constructing Your Bookmark
First cut out a piece of stiff paper that can fit your page piece on it.
Glue the page piece onto the paper.
What I did is I wrote the title of the book on top of the bookmark in the middle of the book like I wrote a cheesy book sentence like "reading takes you to new lands"
