* Just Hanging Around Fun Photo Bookmarks!
I saw the idea for these adorable bookmarks on Pinterest
and had to make some with my own girls.
The idea seems to have originated from the Creative Family Moments blog
and Valerie's super cute homemade tea tags from the Frugal Family Fun blog.
She made hers with clear contact paper/shelf liner, I used my little laminator.
We made a set of bookmarks for Grandpa's birthday (and one for my own books.)
They're so cute, I think I need to make some for Grandmas and Great Grandmas too!
We started with a photo shoot in the playroom.
I asked both of the girls to pretend they were hanging from a rope
and we got some fun photos.
It was a bit trickier explaining the concept to "C" (age 4)
but we got a shot we could use.
Then, I printed the girls' photos out on our printer
and cut them out carefully.
I laminated the photos with my little laminator.
And once again cut them out but this time I left a bit of a border
to make them sturdier.
Then, we punched a small hole by their hands
and tied on some embroidery floss as a tassel.
Fun and easy bookmarks.
I think these would be great teacher gifts too!
