DIY: Simple Magnetic Bookmarks



What I like about a magnetic bookmark is that it creates a sandwich around the page, and the magnet keeps the bookmark from sliding out of the book. They also make great gifts for people of all ages! I made these simple bookmarks out of handmade paper.

Here's the super easy how-to:
1.Keep in mind that your bookmarks will fold, so you need to choose a piece of card stock or other durable paper that can stand some wear. Cut a rectangle.
2.Choose an image that you like or draw your own.
3.Fold your bookmark in half--picture side up.
4.Add a magnet to each of the blank insides of your bookmark. When your bookmark is folded over a page of your book or magazine, the magnets will securely hold the bookmark in place to prevent slippage.
