Fun Kid Bookmark

Lately Quinn has been obsessed with reading big books. We have tried some chapter books and he loves reading these big story collections.

Enter: Ghetto fabulous bookmarks, Star Wars Fruit snack wrapper and scrap of fabric.

I wish I was kidding. The funny thing is: Quinn became obsessed with these bookmarks. He HAD to open up to the page. He HAD to put the bookmark in. The concept fascinated him. He even picked a bookmark at the prize counter at Chuck E. Cheese’s. We lost that one. Hence, fabric scraps and fruit snack wrappers.

I remembered seeing this really cute bookmark idea on Pinterest way back when Pinterest first started. I hopped on and tracked back the idea to here. Since this is her idea I am not going to include a tutorial. I will tell you that I followed her tassel tutorial to a T. I did not have contact paper on hand, so I Mod Podged my pictures to index cards.

Goodbye ghetto fab bookmarks, hello super adorable Quinn swinging from a rope. Isn’t this the most adorable idea ever? I so wish I could claim it as my own.

How many of you are guilty of the scrap of paper/whatever is in reach bookmark? Anyone else have a little one obsessed with bookmarks?

    Thanks so much for including a link. I never thought of Mod-Podge. Brilliant! His bookmarks look worthy of the Superheroes he’s reading about. Cool!

      You are welcome. What a fabulous idea. I am sure you will have lots of visitors stopping by to see how to get her done. We are loving them.

    Somehow I don’t think a picture of me swinging from a rope would be quite so adorable. Great idea…but an even better model.

      It sure would be entertaining though!

    Sooo fun! Totally cute, and way better than what we do around here (try to remember the page number and then argue over what the page number was the next day).
