Make A Christmas Bookmark

Here's an idea for children to make a personalized Christmas bookmark as a little Christmas gift - great for grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles and godparents, or even "best friends". We've got ideas for making even quicker bookmarks below, too.

You will need:

Card
colouring pens
Laminating sheet and machine or sticky back plastic
Hole punch
Thin ribbon, wool (yarn) or cord for tassels

Instructions:

Simply draw your own picture or design on one piece of the card and write a message on the back. Laminate, then punch a hole in the bottom.

To make the tassel, thread a length of thin ribbon or cord through the hole and round your fingers or some other measure a number of times. Tie tightly just under the bookmark with a short length of the same ribbon. Finally, cut the ends.

You could thread on a bead before you tie the tassel together, if you prefer.

More ideas for Christmas bookmarks:

  • Print out some of our Christmas scrapbook and craft paper . Slice each sheet into a number of bookmarks. Write your message on the back before laminating and adding a tassel as before.
  • We've got lots of Christmas bookmarks to print - many of them can be coloured in so are perfect as gifts.
  • Instead of tassels, loop a ribbon through and thread on some pretty beads. Tie knots in the ends of the ribbon to keep the beads on.
  • The bookmarks don't have to be rectangular! Have a look at our Christmas templates and use them to cut out your plain card (ready for your designs) or use our scrapbook paper. How about a Christmas tree with a hole punched at the top and a gold or yellow ribbon threaded through? A stocking, a bauble or a candy cane would all be pretty, too.
