What ever I can do to help my kids to read more, I am all for it. So making a personalized bookmark with colors and their inital on it could be just the push they need to open a book and do a little reading.

Watch the video to learn all the tips and tricks to make these fun bookmarks.
I picked out some fun foil papers from Close to My Heart plus some pretty Gwen Studio ribbon that matched. I cut the book marks to be 2 x 6 inches, so for a 12 x 12 sheet of paper you can get a TON of bookmarks!
I laminated each bookmark with my Xyron Creative Station with the double sided laminate cartridge, this makes each bookmark waterproof, which for kids is a MUST!
To give the bookmark a little something extra I used a fun punch to put a hole in the top and also a little extra decorative top.
The it is all about cutting the vinyl letter to make them even more personalized. Did you know you can cut vinyl with older Cricuts? Use the setting of 3, 3, 3 (pressure, speed, and blade depth) to do a kiss cut for vinyl.
I picked out an Opal vinyl from StyleTechCraft to match the foil paper on the bookmark. To transfer the vinyl to the bookmark using transfer tape is the easiest way.
Just peel off the vinyl backing and place on the bookmark.
Then all you need to do is add the ribbon to the top and you have some cute new bookmarks!
What colors would you make your bookmark?
