A few years ago I received the most delightful and practical bookmark I’d ever seen. It held on to the page by sandwiching it between two thin magnets. I was in college at the time and found it incredibly useful. It didn’t get lost between the pages or cause any damage to my books. Now that school is back in session I wanted to share with you how simple it is to make your own magnetic bookmarks. School can be exhausting and we all need a little encouragement. How about sending your kids back to school with a set of inspirational bookmarks?
To create these bookmarks I used the card shape from the teeny tiny card kit and resized it so that each square is 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″. Then I inserted a phrase onto each bookmark and colored it in. The bookmarks were cut from white cardstock using the print and cut feature.
Each bookmark will need two strips of magnets 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ cut from adhesive magnet paper. Once the magnets are cut assembly is quick and easy. Remove the white liner from one of the adhesive magnets to expose the adhesive side. Adhere it to the inside of the bookmark. Now place the second magnet on top of the first magnet with the adhesive side on top. Peel back the white liner and place the other side of the bookmark down for it to adhere. The magnets should be facing each other perfectly. Isn’t it great not having to mess with glue?
Of course the sky is the limit when it comes to customization. If you’re anything like me you already have a whole library of shapes ready to be printed on these nifty magnetic bookmarks!
