Book Spine Bookmarks
Last Wednesday, I participated in a Google+ #HolidayHangout with Cyn from Creative Cynchronicity. 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?
- Old books
- Scissors and/or X-Acto knife
- Fabric Fusion
- Optional: string for tassel (I do not include instructions for making tassels)
- fake pine garland
- glitter pipe cleaners
- candy canes
(For starters, you could just watch the video I link to above. In addition to this craft, Cyn shares several really great projects, even some for the kids!)
Start by cutting the spine out of your old books…just the ones that we're headed for the recycle bin.
Trim a piece of felt the same size as the book spine.
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 sourest of adults would love to get!
