It’s no secret that I love books. All books. E-books, paperbacks, hardcover – I love them all.

But I’m not a fan of people who treat their books badly. Cracked spines, bent down corners and ripped pages all make my book loving soul tear up a little.

So it may come as no surprise to learn that I LOVE BOOKMARKS. I have dozens from all over the world. And not all of them are fancy. I have grocery receipts from a supermarket in Italy that is among  my favourites of the bookmarks that I own.

I’m a fairly crafty person (and that’s arts and crafts not the sinister kind… although… :P) I’ve recently decided to make some of my own.

There are so many amazing talented people with great ideas – and luckily many of them post easy to follow tutorials so that I too can seem just as talented and amazing as they are.

I’ve decided that every Friday I’m going to post a few of the D.I.Y. bookmarks that I’ve found online with you 🙂 Most of the ones I post will come with a link to the tutorial just in case you want to try them out yourself.

All five of today’s bookmarks are coming from Martha Stewart’s website.

They’re all so pretty. If I get any spare time this weekend I think I’ll give a few of them a go. And then post photos. 😀

Happy Friday. 🙂


  1. They are all so pretty!! My fave bookmark is this thin ribbon with pretty beads at either end (for weighted feel). I bought that from borders when they’re still around but haven’t found the same thing anywhere else. I’ve resorted to making extra ones myself. You inspire me though, so I may do a post about making your own beaded bookmark, one day 😀

    and btw, just the other day, I saw a colleague reading a book I lent her (which I’m happy about) but… she’s dog-eared my books. My heart just weeps (silently)… 🙁

  2. Oh, I love the little tie and shirt ones, they’re so cute! Bookmarks are like the silent heros of the book world lol! 😀 I’ll have to send you some of my bookmarks to add to your collection, I just got some made up. 🙂

    • The silent heroes of the book world…. I really like that! And the tie and shirt ones are my favourite too… they’re adorable!
