Materials List

  2. Have the kids cut out pictures of themselves to fit on the bookmark.
  3. Glue the children's pictures to the top of the bookmark
  4. Below the picture have your children write -

  • You may laminate this gift so it will last forever.
  • Change the text for the any person the child needs to make a gift for.
  • For very young children, you can write the words, or print them from a computer.  But written by a child looks best.

Here are some ideas sent in by one of our visitors.  These three project ideas all use white glue and markers to create bookmarks.

Idea 1

  1. Use a pencil box, and color a design on one side of the box using markers.

  2. Cover the part of the pencil box that you covered, with white craft glue

  3. Let dry for 12-24 hours.

    Warning: do not try to speed the process up with a hairdryer because it will mess up the desighn of the makers underneath the glue.

Idea 2

  1. Draw a design on a piece of white paper using makers.

  2. Cover the design with regular white craft glue.

  3. Let dry for 24 hours and peel of slowly.

    Note: it should come off with a very thin layer of paper too.

Idea 3

  1. Get out a piece of Wax paper.

  2. Color the paper with markers in whatever shape or design you want as your bookmark 

    NOTE: the marker will look like it is not staying and it will seem like it will not work but it will so don't give up yet.

  3. Cover your design with white craft glue and let dry for 24 hours.

  4. Gently peel off of the wax paper.
