Build your own (offline) Bookmark for you, your friend for mother's day or everything else you can think of.

This bookmark will hold your book together, will spare your book and will not fall out, if your book falls onto the floor.

Step 1: Supllies

What you need is:

  • some cardboard, a ruler, anythig you can get a hole in and you want to use as bookmark. (I used a cardboard with a printed-on ruler, you never know, when you can need a ruler.) or you cann follow this Instructable.
  • rubber band or elastic thread
  • a scissor, drill, or a hole puncher
  • a book you read and which you can bookmark with your new bookmark
  • optional: duct tape
  • not optional but mandatory: instructable sticker

Really cool idea!
Where can i get said sticker?
<tt>most&nbsp;likely&nbsp;they won it from a contest...</tt>
or if not so lucky you can make it DIY in Photoshop, and the printed...I do it all the time ( not with this specific sticker)
Nice. very practical and useful idea. :)
i just use an elastic =)<br/>
I made one with this little slim calculator that came free with a pack of biros and I stuck the calculator onto the ruler(in a way so That I could still use the ruler properly)Then poked a hole (reeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllyyyy slowly) using the point of a compass. I use this bookmark for maths class! REALLY COOL INSTRUCTIBLE!!!!!!!!!
