8 handmade bookmark ideas

Here, you can see the simple bookmark of paper thanks to the art of origami or origami. You will only need a very nice sheet of paper and a little skill folding the paper. You can see it here!

Jewel bookmark

Have you ever seen these original bookmarks in the form of a jewel? Of course, it has been a while since I saw an idea as original as the one we see; but besides being ingenious and beautiful, they are perfect options to recycle all kinds of fabrics and textiles that you have on hand.

Has the strap broken? Do not throw it away! Cut out a piece of it and use it as a bookmark. If you have a remnant of a piece of fabric that has been left over, even a nice lace strip, you have to add an ornament that you like at one end and ready to be used!

As you can see, you only need an adornment or bead that you like (it can be a piece of a keychain that you have at home, and it has been broken) a ring to attach the ornament and a metal clasp to catch the fabric and stay fixed.

An original heart-shaped paper bookmark

Very easy to do. The other is made with origami but in the form of a heart. Ideal to give Valentine’s Day with a romantic book.

Butterfly-shaped bookmarks

And we continue with another original paper bookmark, in this case in the form of a butterfly.

Paper flower bookmark

If you have something more practical with the origami, you can also make this bookmark in the form of a flower and with several colors. Much more elaborate, but with a little patience you can get out of 10.

Crochet bookmarks

If yours is the crochet, you can make your figurines to work as bookmarks. You can also make flowers or any other figure with wool.

Original pompom bookmark

If you like wool but do not control the needles, we suggest you make your original brand pompons with wool pompoms. They are very easy to do!

Rubber bookmark Eva

Another material to make original pages can be Eva, a material that we can buy online. Especially if the idea is to make crafts with children, this will be your best option. A gift for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day or any other celebration, to accompany a good reading with a craft made with much love.
