Does One Really Ever Have Enough Bookmarks? GIVEAWAY!!!

Have you ever noticed that certain bloggers have their thing? Well, if I were to have such a thing, I believe it would be bookmarks. No, I have never reading 27 books at one time. However, I do like to switch my bookmarks often. Here are my latest and greatest:

Photobucket

I used both sides of the box for these.  It made it convenient since they were already the same sizes.  I'll be using the fronts and backs for something else.

After I cut out the sides, I glued them together and then lamenated both sides.

Photobucket

I punched a hole in the top and threaded through coordinating ribbons.

You want for for yourself?  Sure, they're easy enough to make, but you want one that you don't have to make?  Here's how you can get one.

1.  Comment, telling me that you want one.
2.  Tell me the title of one of your favorite books (always on the lookout for future reads).

Oh how cute! I would adore one! Right now I'm reading Debbie Macomber's 'A Turn in the Road'. Funny book. Another one, kind of a constantly updating one, is 'Praying God's Will for My Son' by Lee Roberts.

I just LOVE bookmarks! :-) I'm usually reading 2-3 books at once. Right now, I am re-reading the Little house on the Prairie series...for the 100th time, lol. let's see, what else am I reading.

I also want to re-read Marion Zimmer Bradley, the Mists of Avalon. I don't usually go for "fantasy" type of stories, but, BEST. BOOK. EVER! Huge book, but so worth it!

I'd love for you to link this up to our wicked awesome wednesday link party, if you have time. Great project.

Aren't you clever? Those bookmarks are so cute.
Currently I'm reading Children of Jihad ~ trying to get in the habit of reading nonfiction for a change. Thanks for the chance to win.

A food inspired bookmark would work excellently...reading instead of snacking...yippee! I just finished the last Fannie Flagg book- 'I Still Dream About You'...GREAT book!

Tiffany said...

What a great idea! And no, one can never have enough bookmarks!
I'm loving the J.D. Robb In Death series right now.

I love your idea! The whale one is adorable! My favorite book is The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell. Thanks for sharing!

How adorable. And simple. I like that.

One of my favorite books is People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I read it over 2 years ago, and I'm still hooked.

I love this! Super cute and no, you never have enough bookmarks. I grab a handful every time I go to the Library. I want one. My fave book of all time, Persuasion(Jane Austen) loved lately The Thirteenth Tale (Diane Setterfield) and The Historian (Elizabeth Kostova). The Historian was gloriously long. I love to lose myself in a book and not get jerked back to reality too soon.

how fun...i LOvE them

What a great recycling project! And useful, too. I'd love one. My boys are forever tossing around my books and losing my page.

If you haven't read it, Good Grief by Lolly Winston is a great book.
