Easy Bookmarks-Craft Tutorial

This is a wonderfully easy craft!  My daughter made a bunch and gave them to the ladies in her Bible study group.  Such a neat idea!

Here are the things you'll need.  (If you are a scrapbooker, you probably have these already!) Paper cutter (or scissors), a hole punch (round or otherwise!), paint sample strips, ribbon.

Now using your chosen punchie shape, punch out 3-4 shapes.
Put your first one at the top of the strip to thread the ribbon through.

I'm staying at my daughter's house while they are away, so am away from all of my craft supplies. I managed to find one of hers, and it just happens to be a butterfly which matches the butterflies on the paint strips!  Kinda cool!!

Now, cut about 7-8 inches of ribbon, fold it in 1/2 and poke it through the punchie hole at the top.
Thread the 2 ends through the loop and tighten it up.

You can glue some of the punched out shapes to the paint sample strip, or leave it as is.
There you have it!  Easy peasey!
