Make Your Own Bookmarks

Written by Sheeba Manish

The books from Amazon are as much anticipated as the bookmarks that come with them. Everyone needs a bookmark, not just adults. A bookmark can guide you to where you left or help you return to your favourite page in the whole book. Sometimes to do this, we end up folding the page; everyone doesn’t keep a bookmark handy. Pretty soon the lovely book looks like a sad puppy with dogs ears strewn through it. That just won’t do will it? Books are like teeth. If we take care of them, they last and last and never lose their bite.

However, just any old bookmark won’t do. Boring long pieces that look like a cane are no fun. Luckily, the relentless searchers of all things interesting for children at Little Kulture chanced upon the ‘monster’ bookmarks and the ‘fox’ bookmarks. Even a tiny baby likes foxes and monsters -the cute kind.You will love making these ‘do it yourself’ or DIY bookmarks.

The orange fox bookmark will make everyone envy you. Of course, envy is not a good thing so you could gift some bookmarks to them too.
