Cut your paper in a bookmark shape. I used a patterned scissor to make designs on the perimeter. Then, use your hole puncher to make a hole

Cut a smaller rectangle from a page of an old book and glue that on to the middle of your bookmark. I added a strip of paper with holes into the middle.

Thread the twine or string through the hole and tie a knot.
