Winter Pinterest Challenge: Personalized Bookmarks

It's Winter Pinterest Challenge Time! The bloggers behind Young House Love and Bower Power dreamed this challenge up, and I was thrilled to participate again-- I also played along this past summer when I created repurposed book page art.

This time, I was very much inspired by handmade bookmarks, as can be found on Pinterest here, here, and here.

Like my bookmark project of yore, I wanted to create something simple, modern, and of course, personalized. Bonus points for something quick to whip up without costing me a dime. So, I only used supplies I already had hidden deep within my crafting hoard: glue stick, craft paper, and card stock.






All I did was find quotes and fonts that I love, married the two together, and printed 'em out. Easy as pie.


 In case you were dying of curiosity or want to replicate what I've done, here are the quotes I used. Copy and paste these quotes to your hearts content.
“When I think of all the books still left for me to read, I am certain of further happiness.”
-Jules Renard

“I only read what I am hungry for at the moment when I have an appetite for it, and then I do not read, I eat.”
-Simone Weil

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us.”
- Franz Kafka

“Woke up this morning with a terrific urge to lie in bed all day and read.”
-Raymond Carver


As usual, I had a ton of fun letting my creative juices flow. The project required little thought or concentration, which made for a nice stress reliever. I highly recommend this activity to all of my fellow bookworms out there!
