Supplies

Orange cardboard
Clear contact paper
Paper napkin with a border sunflowers or other motif
Hole puncher
Eyelets
Glue stick
Scissors
Ruler
Cord

Instructions

Cut out orange cardboard to an appropriate bookmarker size. This one is 10” x 4”. Cut out a piece of paper napkin border to fit within the orange cardboard and leaving a margin on both sides. With stick glue, lightly glue a line down the cardboard and gently and smoothly lay the sunflower border piece on it. Try to avoid wrinkles.

Cut 2 pieces of contact paper larger than the bookmarker. Remove the back side of the first piece and lay this piece over the front side of the bookmarker, making sure to avoid wrinkles. Repeat this step for the back side of the bookmarker. Cut away the excess contact paper leaving a foil border of about 1/8”.

Punch a hole in the top center of the bookmarker and secure the hole with an eyelet. Pull a cording loop through the hole and pull the 2 ends through the loop to secure the cord.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
