Bookmarks Make Great Gifts

What you’ll need:
· Beads
· Pipe cleaners
· Thick paper (any colour will do, but probably white is better for painting on)
· Hole punch
· Watercolors
· Water
· Scissors

· Cut a rectangular bookmark and punch a hole at one end;
· Get the pipe cleaner through the hole;
· Use beads to make patterns, or just use any colors you want;
· Paint the bookmark with watercolors. To get the colors to mix and absorb one another wet the paper before painting on it;
· Let the bookmarks dry.

For durability you could also laminate the bookmarks. You would also ensure that the watercolors won’t stain the books.

These make great gifts for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day!
