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?

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.

    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.

    • Megan Bray

      It sure would be entertaining though!
