2. Map Your Favorite Place Onto The Bookmark
Traveling is one of the most popular passions of people nowadays. I am not an exception. For me travelling and reading go hand in hand. Almost everyone has a place they went and loved, they wanted to go, or the one place on their bucket list. So would like to make a bookmark out of it? All you need to do is make a simple bookmark with a cardstock paper and ribbon. Then to make it special, choose the map of one place you love or want to be and stick it onto the bookmark.
3. Washi Tape Bookmarks
Washi tapes is so useful in DIY craft projects. To make these handmade bookmark, you need to have a basic cardstock bookmark onto which you can stick washi tapes of different colors in different patterns and designs. And last but not the least,the ribbon or the thread that you usually attach to a bookmark. You can even use a different pattern on the other side to use your bookmark both the ways.
4. Patriotic Bookmarks
Now its time to be more creative. This DIY bookmark will help you to express the pride of your state and country. To make this, first choose a small map of the state you belong. Once done cut the template onto a glitter paper. This must be stuck onto a basic cardstock bookmark, which you can outline with more glitter paper to give it a nicer look.
5. Bookmark That Lets You Mark It Up
Do you have a habit of marking not just pages, but also paragraphs. This bookmark idea will also help you take small notes whenever possible. Start with applying glue on rows of bunches of small sticky notes in neon colors onto a basic cardstock paper bookmark. Further you can use sticky notes of one color or multiple colors to give the bookmark a different look on the hole.
If you dont have enough time to make everything from the scratch, but still want a creative bookmark, then think of trying this one out. To make this bookmark, you need a gift tag, a stamp and a piece of string. Be ready with a design of your choice and stamp it onto the gift tag, and tie a string to the end of it. This is a perfect bookmark to make in your spare time which looks simple and classy.
7. Confetti Filled Bookmark
Many of us have a habit of keeping business envelopes, are you one of such people? Business envelops can be used for so many creative things. For making a confetti-filled bookmark, all you need is some business envelopes with a clear address window. Cut around the window, keep it on a piece of colored paper, and stick it to the paper, but only from three sides. Once done its time to in as much confetti as you want to make a shiny, glittery bookmark.

8. Bookmark With Felt Tassel
Tassel are great in making bookmarks. To make tassel bookmark, all you need to do is, just take a felt sheet, cut out two long strips with a rectangle at the bottom. Later, cut fringes at the lower part of the rectangles, lay the felt strips one atop another. Now roll them up beginning from the side of the long strip. For the final strip, glue the felt pieces together as a tassel and you are good to go!
