Bookmarks.


Today the boys made bookmarks - small handmade gifts from them to go with the sewn library totes. We made them very simple - and they look nice!


We first cut heavy card stock to a good bookmark size. We then took the decorative papers the boys picked out and cut many pieces that would fit onto the strips.


The boys glued and assembled the paper, mixing and matching carefully, and then punched a heart shaped hole in the top of each piece. We slipped a piece of yarn in the hole and made a knot. Done!
