Many of us own books and often need to mark a page. Most of us own more books than bookmarks, however. Some invest in a limited amount of commercial bookmarks. Others simply scramble for paper scraps when the need to mark a page arises. This instructable will teach you how to create attractive, sturdy bookmarks that you can truly call your own. So spend and scramble no more--let's create homemade bookmarks!
