  • 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

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!!!!!!!!!

I got them directly from intructables.com, because one of my instructable (the horse radish) was featured in the newsletter. Thanks again to the team...
