What a cool and fresh idea!!! You can remove the spines from old books and make bookmarks. Why didn’t I think of that?! It would be the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for book lovers.
· a book spine
· Heavy cardstock
· Matte gel medium for glue
· Ribbon or tassel
- Use matte gel medium to glue heavy cardstock to back of book spine
- Use brayer to really flatten them together. Let dry completely.
- Trim around book spine
- Punch hole and set eyelet
- Add ribbon or tassel
You can decorate your bookmark by stamping, ink, chalk or any sort of embellishment, just remember not to make it too 3-dimensional…and nothing that will stain your book pages!
