Magnetic bookmarks

My pile of scraps and bits and pieces leftover from other projects was beginning to pile up. Before I put them away I decided to make these bookmarks using some of the leftovers. I loved making these and will be making more. At some point I'll do a pictorial with instructions (they are super easy!) but for now, here are two creations I made this weekend.


 back:



This is what the backs look like. For the flat magnet, I used a half-inch circle punch and cut from an advertising fridge magnet. I tried first using two of these, but they were too thin and wouldn't stay together. this magnetic button I got in the craft section at WalMart is much stronger and holds great.

Thanks for popping in. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think!

  1. Beautiful Bookmarks, I so need me one of these, since I still like reading an Actual book, I just can't seem to fall in love with the kindle, LOL. I guess I still like some stuff old school my friend. Hope you have a great day.
