Bookmarkers DIY – PinterTESTed for you. Which failed?

Bookmarkers DIY – PinterTESTed for you. Which failed?

And there’s Thursday again!  The weekly prompt for Crea-Cross is Books so I went on Pinterest and found some great bookmarkers to test out.  I did make a few changes in the designs and made a whole new idea on my on!


I still love the smell and the feel of books, even now that I hava an  e-reader. I love illustrations and the colors!  My son is learning how to read now, so that means that I have more books in the house…


Bookmarkers DIY – PinterTEST

I tested three bookmarkers as they were explained on Pinterest.  The orange origami bookmarker on the right corner is very simple and you can follow the steps. When you use lovely paper with cute patterns, your result just can’t go wrong!
The second one I tested is the one on the right upper corner, made out of an envelope and Washi tape. You can find the instructions here.

The third pin I tested, the one on the left, closest to the fold I used magnet paper and washi tape. This one failed, because the magnet paper wasn’t strong enough and the bookmarker kept falling out! If you want to see if you can do better, be my guest and follow the instructions.  It looks oké, but the magnetpaper wasn’t very qualitative.

The two I combined

For the one with the pink feather and the paperclip I combined two other pins: The feathers out of washi tape and the flags out of whashi tape on a paper clip.

I made a feather flag on a paper clip!

The new bookmarker

I a dollor shop here in Belgium I found these funny paperclips in the shape of a dog’s bone.  I made a macramé rope with a white pearl.  This became a nice bookmarker for a dog lovin’ friend.

Next week’s prompt is ‘smile’

I’m hoping for lots of smiling faces… but for this week: show me your bookmarkers or other book related DIY!

Take care and see you soon!

  1. Thank you for taking the time to test those book markers and letting us know. I love the washi tape one, I’ll probably give it a try. Like you, I’ve gone digital with my books, but both my kids have their own books now too, so yes, that means more paper books at our house again.
    Thank you for joining The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!
