Book Spine Bookmarks


Last Wednesday I participated in a Google+ #HolidayHangout with Cyn from Creative Cynchronicity. Click HERE to watch! During it I shared a super cute Book Spine Bookmark gift or table favor idea. I made it by combining a couple of ideas I’d seen via the web, this one and another I’ll mention later on.

I’m really in love with these bookmarks! They make perfect table favors, decorations, or gifts. Wouldn’t you want one of these decorating your Christmas present?

My Very Educated Mother: Book Spine Bookmarks


Supplies:
  • Old books
  • Scissors and/or X-Acto knife
  • felt
  • Fabric Fusion
  • Optional: string for tassel (I do not include instructions for making tassels)
  • fake pine garland
  • ribbons
  • glitter pipe cleaners
  • candy canes
Instructions
(For starters, you could just watch the video I link to above. In addition to this craft Cyn shares a number of really great projects even some for the kids!)

Start by cutting the spine out of your old books…just the ones that were headed for the recycle bin.

@mvemother Cutting out the book spines to make bookmarks
Trim a piece of felt the same size as the book spine.

@mvemother Using felt on Book Spine Bookmarks
Glue the felt and spine together using Fabric Fusion and let dry.

Next you’ll add the candy cane and trimmings! For those instructions be sure to head over to SMC by Design and she’ll give you the 411. Once everything is all together you end up with a favor even the most sour of adults would love to get!
