5 Minutes Craft – Steampunk Magnetic Bookmark

Today in 5 Minutes craft I’m sharing a magnetic bookmark, but not only is it functional and super easy to create it’s also in steampunk style! So I’m having fun all around!

Steampunk is one of my favorite styles. I love the dark colors and masculine feeling to it and I also like the mechanical and Si-Fi feel to parts of the imagery. If I can play with cogwheels, wires and other metal embellishments I’m happy! Steampunk is much easier to create than you think. All you need are scraps of paper in dark colors with a pattern like script, numbers, keys,shapes etc. just make sure there are no cute or flowery images. Then you need a metal embellishment that can be a cogwheel, a flower or a key as long as it’s metal.

Once you have all the things you need just create the bookmark or even a few of them. The secret to this bookmark is that it’s magnetic and can’t fall. It holds the book pages between its two sides. Check out the video to see how to create it! Check out the video to see how to create it!

    Einat, very cool and easy project. I made up some ‘table scraps kits’ (all the different things leftover from projects plus other random items that show up on my table) and these would be a great use for some of them. Where did you find your magnets? They look small, most that I see are 1/2″ or larger. Which, I suppose, would work, but I think I’d rather have something a little smaller, especially if they are very strong.
