A Smile Every Time!

My favorite thing about these bookmarks is that they not only work great, but are bound to put a smile on your face at any time. First you will want to take a photo of your child, you can use your phone or camera. Load it into your computer (I used word), crop it down and then print. Remember a bookmark should be a good length.

Once printed, cut out as close as you can to their figure.

Next up is lamination! Put your cut outs into the lamination pouches and send through your machine. I used these pouches and this machine.

DIY kid's bookmark

Just as before, you are going to want to cut out the kids (sounds funny) but this time, don’t cut so close the the figures. Leave enough room to use a hole puncher for the yarn.

Select any color yarn and cut it to your desired length. Pull the yarn through the hole you made with your punch and simply knot it! That’s it! You’re done!
