Hey girl hey. And boy.
I’m late. Again. 😂 But it’s still Thursday for me since its 10:05 pm right now. SO I was like lemme do a diy. I didn’t really have any supplies on me so I decided to make a room decor one later on in the fall. SO for all you bookworms, this is for you. I always end up folding the corner of my book page (learned it in second grade from my friend but apparently it’s a thing too 😂) and idk it just ends up getting the book all wrinkled. Especially library ones where you need to be a bit careful. These are super easy and if I can make it then YOU can make it. I swear 😂. These are all the same style but I’ll show you how to do it in 2 different ways so let’s actually get started.
- Yarn (make sure it’s not too thick and not too thin. Too thick will be hard to get it through the hole in the paper and too thin will give you a concussion)
- Card-stock paper
- Pencil Crayons/Markers
- Tape (optional)
Step #1 – Cut your yarn.
I’ll say make it the length between your fingertips to your elbow. (or a bit more if you have tiny arms) My leaf bookmark turned out super tiny!! So just remember that you could cut off excess yarn later.
Step #2 – Draw Your Fall Icon.
I chose to make my first one hot cocoa since hot chocolate is bae and a fall essential. The cut-out should not be too big or too small (okay I sound like Goldilocks).
Step #3 – Colour and Poke a Hole.
You could cut out your hole in the top corner but in my case, I did it on the handle. I don’t have a punch-holer so I did it the old fashioned poking pencil way. You could also kind of fold and cut but I always cut extra and it’s so annoying.
Step #4 – Tie the Yarn Around the Hole
Pretty self explanatory.
Step #5 – The Bookmark Set-up
Now you could do this two ways. 1 being just tie a knot on the other end and move it like a normal bookmark…
…and 2 being my favourite since that means it’s sort of more permanent and easier to access. Basically you find the middle of the book, tape the yarn onto the book side thing but this time your fall icon will be on the other side.
Anddd that may or may not be the book I’m reviewing on Tuesday for my Classictastic Challenge 😂😂
I made a couple other icons like a leaf and pumpkin and here’s how they turned out.
And yes, we had this Terry Fox run today. It was surprisingly fun because I
walked the whole way with a friend of mine (yes, I made a new friend and yes, school is sort of better but some days are worst than others. I’ll give you guys an update in another blog). My personal fav is the hot choco one. Btw some people draw steam with red like um are you blind? It’s clearly a greyish transparent 😂
Oh and for all you people who aren’t really into books – which don’t even talk to me 😂- you could use these as room decor but maybe make the cutouts bigger and hang them on a wall or table.
Which bookmark was your favourite?
Will you recreate this diy? (I know you won’t. I’m just trying to be like those diy bloggers so let me be 😂)
I’ll see you guys Sunday.
