Instructables

Make your own bookmark (fall-on-the-floor-proof)

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 3: Digg a hole

Picture of Digg a hole
Put a hole on the upper side of your almost finished bookmark.
I used a screwdriver for the hole and widened it with the tip of a scissor.

Step 5: Use it.

Use your bookmark. Lay it into your book, let the elastic hang out. Close the book, and put the rubber band around the closed book. That's it.
Easy, simple but effective.

Have fun with it. And rate and comment. Also I would be pleased to see your designs.

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)

i'm pretty sure the rubber without being wound around the book is enough to prevent it from falling out, because rubber is quite grippy ( unless your using elastic which is covered with synthetics)

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...
