In a world full of technology like digital music, social media, and cell phones I think I will always love the feel of a physical book versus a digital one. I enjoy turning the pages and keeping my mark. Now that my daughter is officially reading chapter books, I thought I’d make bookmarks for the two of us. Here is how to make these fun extra-large photo bookmarks.
- HP Inkjet Matte Brochure Paper
- Scrapbook Paper
- Paper Cutter
- Glue Stick
- Hole Punch
- HP Sprocket Photo Printer
- HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper
HP Sprocket photos are 2X3 inches, so you want to trim your paper to a slightly larger size to create a boarder. I trimmed these bookmarks to 8” X 3.5”. Cut both the brochure paper and scrapbook paper to create a sturdy bookmark. Glue the two pieces together and cut a hole for the tassel using a hole punch.
To make the tassel, wrap yarn around four fingers spread out about 20 times. Cut one looped end keeping the yarn folded. Cut a long piece of yarn for the tassel string and tuck it inside the looped yarn. Tie another piece of yarn around the top looped end to form the tassel. Trim the end of the tassel and tie it onto the bookmark.
Lastly, print your favorite photos on your Sprocket. Stick three pictures on the front and back of your bookmark.
These make great gifts for friends, teachers, and grandparents!
