As an avid reader, I have a lot of bookmarks, but I also lose a lot of them as well. I will forget that I’ve tucked one inside a library book until I’ve already returned it, so now I’ve stopped buying them and instead make them using supplies I already have. These also make great gifts for the bookish people in your life and would be a great project to do with your book club.
Trace a mug or teacup template onto patterned paper, and cut out. Cut a square from the patterned paper. Adhere a string or ribbon to the mug/teacup, and then adhere the other end to the square. Embellish the tag if desired.
For this project, I used Stampington & Company's Mug and Teacup Templates that were originally featured in The Stampers' Sampler. For even more unique templates, be sure to check out Book of Templates.
Tip: Since you want the tag to stick out the top of the book, and books vary in size, you can make a few bookmarks with different lengths of ribbon or string.
