Simple DIY Bookmarks

If you like to both read and craft, this project should be up your street. I’m bringing you the idea for simple (though cute) DIY bookmarks. The whole project can be done in about 15 minutes! It’s also a great one to do with children, as it doesn’t require great manual skills. And it may encourage the little ones to both craft and read! You’ll need one of those floral hole cutters for this project, they can be found in craft stores or online and usually cost peanuts. They’re great to have overall, super useful in papercrafts!
