I’m a huge book lover, but I don’t have any bookmarks. So I decided I would try my hand at making a few! I’m also a big fan of all things related to Alice in Wonderland, so I googled Alice in Wonderland tags and labels under images and found a few that I liked. Then I printed these out and was ready to get started on my DIY Alice in Wonderland paper bookmarks.
To make these bookmarks, I chose images that could make a double sided bookmark. And one image reading “Eat Me” and one reading “Drink Me” was perfect!
I glued one image onto the printer paper, and then cut the image out of the paper.
After this was done, I glued the other image to the printer paper side. This made a thicker bookmark than it would have been had I just glued the two images together.
I had found some images that already had a place for a hole to be punched, but these images didn’t come with that. So I used a pen to mark the place where I wanted to use my hole punch.
Now, I punched a hole into the bookmark with the intention of adding a ribbon for some more detail. But it’s perfectly fine to end your bookmark here if you would like, should you decide to give this project a try.
I cut the amount of ribbon I wanted to use, and then gently swept a lighter over the raw edges to clean them up and prevent fraying.
And then the bookmark was completed! Here is side one, Drink Me. And side two…
Here are the other Alice in Wonderland paper bookmarks I made as well!
This was my first time making a bookmark, and I kind of made it up as I went along, but I am really happy with the way these bookmarks turned out. I chose to make bookmarks with the Alice in Wonderland theme, but there is no limit to the number of fantastic bookmarks you could make with any theme you choose! The sky is the limit with this project.
