Introduction: Automatic Bookmark
This is my first instructable, so please bear with me
You are absorbed in middle of an interesting book. And all of a sudden, someone bumps into you and SLAM shuts the book! You didn't even get time to bookmark the page and now you will have to painstakingly go through all the chapters to find out where you left. Now worry no more. This automatic bookmark keeps track of the page you are reading ... well, automatically! Even if the book is closed accidentally it will stay in place and let you start off immediately
Step 1: Materials and Tools
1. Cardboard (shown here is piece of cornflakes box)
2. Piece of regular printer paper. You can draw or print your design. I have printed "hand" dings
1. Pair of scissors
2. Black marker
3. Glue (shown here is PVA glue, but paper glue will work too)
Sketch the pattern shown in the figure on the card and then cut out along the black lines
Cut out the pattern on the printer paper
Paste the hand on the card paper as shown.
Let your bookmark dry and it is ready to use!
Tuck it to the last pages or the cover like a paper clip. This works like an anchor for the pointer
Place the pointer on the page you are reading.
As you read simply turn the page and the pointer will jump up and settle on the new page!
