I am a bookworm down to my core! One thing that is essential for a good reading time, specifically when you finish a chapter, the bookmark. Having a special bookmark that speaks to you, or that you enjoy to look at while reading, is the greatest item you can have. There are many bookmarks out there to choose from. You may enjoy the basic solid color bookmark, or are very peculiar how a bookmark appears. Heck, you may be the type of bookworm that presses the corner of the page inwards or uses random materials from your house as a bookmark.
Regardless of what kind of bookmark you use, I have a few creative recommendations that you should consider purchasing before you uses your old bookmarks.
Ready to craft your own? This particular handcrafted bookmark is simple and easy to do. This bookmark is from the website Sparkles of Sunshine, created by Christie (who doesn’t have a last name). Christie showcases all her creative bookmarks and other crafts. She has pictures that tell you in simple terms how to do each step efficiently and what materials you’ll need.
Ribbon bookmarks have that nice pull, almost like an elastic band. I think this will help for those who sometimes have a bookmark slip through the pages. Nice, tight, and secure is this bookmark. There is no price range, however based on the materials you may use (altenrative materials similar to suggested) you can make different kinds or a similar set. The price could be roughly $20-$30 at the craft store or any other place you shop.
Enjoy plants or are a garden fanatic, these simple bookmarks are from an online shop in Tokyo, Japan. Yuruliku online shop is where you can buy these bookmarks. The simple plant like design resembles a green leaf or strip of grass.
if simplicity is your aesthetic when choosing bookmarks, I’d recommend this type. enjoy reading multiple books simultaneously, watch how your shelved books can look like a garden when using these GreenMarker bookmarks.
Price is $5.95 or $6 USD
