Inside: how to make a DIY paper bookmark with a magnet
When I was about 8 or 9 years old I used to read a lot of books, so many that I had a special position in the library. I was selected to be a special helper to the librarian and as part of my job I arranged books on shelves and mended torn books with masking tape - I guess I had good hands even back then 🙂 That job made me feel so important and accomplished and I think it was one of the most positive experiences I had as a child. Today I don't read so much but books have a special place in my hearts. I could never read a book on Kindle or on the computer and if I do read a book its always a hard copy.
If there is one thing I hate is that people mark their place in the book by folding the corner of the page. I never do that because I made myself a paper DIY bookmark with a magnet and you can make one too.
BOOKMARK WITH A MAGNET
Whe you use a bookmark it sometimes fall outside of the book or even slide inside between the pages. To avoid that make a magnetic bookmark that holds the book page strongly and stays in its place!

You can make a magnetic bookmark from many materials like paper and fabric and in any shape. You can decorate it with fun accents or additions like:

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.
