HOW TO MAKE A DIY BOOKMARK WITH A MAGNET

 

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!

 

 

HOW TO MAKE A DIY BOOKMARK WITH A MAGNET

 

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:

  • Tassels
  • Flowers
  • Charms
  • Ribbon
  • Pictures
  • Metal embellishments

 

DIY PAPER MAGNETIC BOOKMARK

 

  • Cut a cardstock into the desired size and fold in half.
  • Embellish the bookmark with elements that match the style of the bookmark.
  • Attach a magnet to each of the inside edge of the bookmark.
  • Cover the magnets and the inside of the bookmark with papers.

 

MAGNETIC BOOKMARK GIFT IDEA

 

I made this bookmark in a steampunk style so I embellished it with some industrial images and a metal cogwheel. You can match the design of the bookmark to the person who receives it. For example if you make a bookmark for teacher you can decorate it with letters, apples or even an apple or pencils. If you make a bookmark for boyfriend then add some hearts on it and if you make a bookmark for mom then adding a photo of the two of you could be a nice touch.

WHERE TO GET A MAGNET FOR A DIY BOOKMARK

 

Making this project is a great opportunity to use your paper scraps or other leftover supplies because a bookmark is a small enough project. However in order to make the bookmark strong enough to hold the book page you need a strong enough magnet.

Here's a few options:

    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.
