Awesome Bookmarks from Old Books
What to do with old books? Why --- make some awesome bookmarks, of course, and just in time for school starting soon!
Isn't this an awesome way to use old books?
The hardest part is cutting the spline off the book.... it's not physically hard, no. Cutting up a book is difficult! I've bought some books at tag sales specifically for this purpose.
Cut the spline off a book. Glue the vertical edges toward the back. Punch a hole near the top of the bookmark. Insert eyelet. Cover the back with a matching color felt or pretty cardstock paper. tie ribbon through the eyelet. Voila! Bookmark!
