Step 1:

You'll need:

  • cardboard (more or less 14 cm x 10 cm)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • elastic band (more or less 30 cm)

Step 2:

Fold the cardboard in two.

Step 3:

Glue both ends of the elastic band inside the cardboard, so it makes a loop.

Step 4:

Glue the cardboard.

Step 5:

Optional: you can cut the corners of the cardboard so they are round.

Step 6:

You can decorate the cardboard in the way you prefer: here I've drawn a tulip with felt-tips, but you can use collage or paper, free your fantasy.

Step 7:

The bookmark is ready.

Step 8:

Booksaver: the elastic band will keep the book closed, so the book won't be riuned if you put it in a bag.

Step 9:

Bookmark: the cardboard will keep the mark.
