Scrapbooking Crafts – Make Personalized Book Markers Using Easy to Find Wrapping Paper

2 min read

Are you or someone you know an avid reader?  Try making a personalized bookmarker so you will never lose your place. You can make several of these in no time at all using cardboard and antiqued looking wrapping paper.  What a quick way to create art with decorative scrap paper and your own personalized 3-D foam letter, as you will find out by reading below.

Begin by selecting a scrap piece of wrapping paper that resembles time gone by.  If you do not have any left over wrapping paper, you can find some very inexpensive paper at your local craft store.  For this project an antiqued looking sports theme was used in a flat finish (tan, brown, black and olive).   Using scissors, cut the wrapping paper in to two 8 in.H x 2 in.W strips.  Next, cut one piece of thin scrap cardboard in to an 8 in.H x 2 in.W piece to match in size the two strips of paper you have already cut and set aside.  Spray artist adhesive to one side of the cardboard and apply one of the wrapped paper strips to it, smooth out any wrinkles and allow time to dry, approx. 5 minutes.  Next, flip the quickly to be finished custom book marker over and repeat the same process on the other side.  Now, to add the personalizing touch to your project, add a 3d foam letter sticker for scrapbooking to the front side of your marker.  For this project we used a cream colored S letter, 1.5 in. x 1.5 in..

That is all there is to it.  A nice simple scrapbooking craft, and a special and personalized custom book marker.  A great classroom craft for teachers, or just the rest of us everyday home crafters.
