DIY Bookmarks.

I’m a type of person who feels really bad just by folding a page of any (story) books. They are literally like my treasure and I take care of them with all of my heart! Moreover, me having a very bad memory can never remember the page I left off the day before and I end up reading three pages all over, again. So, I usually make some DIY bookmarks!  As my last bookmarks got really old I thought of making some new ones and do a small tutorial on it! I won’t be explaining all of the bookmarks I did, I’ll just explain the base of each bookmark and then give some ideas to decorate them!

MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED:

  1. Water Color Paper
  2. Washi Tape
  3. Water Color
  4. Painting Brushes

HOW TO MAKE DIY BOOKMARKS:

  1. First stick the washi tapes across the paper, make sure the sizes of each rectangle are suitable for a bookmark. Processed with VSCO with  preset
  2. Paint one rectangle at a time.

Paint in whatever color or pattern you want, just stick with a definite color palette for each rectangle or they can end up being just a  clutter of some green and dark brown color.Processed with VSCO with  preset

  1. Then Peel off all the Washi tape and cut the rectangles with scissors. Keep a good amount of white edge for each bookmark then trim it off.Processed with VSCO with  preset
