If your family’s full of bookworms like mine is, cut your old Christmas and greeting cards into strips and make a pile of bookmarks! I like to make wide ones and narrow ones. We use them for all our homeschool books, storybooks, novels, etc – and I usually have about a half dozen skinny ones marking various places in my Bible and my copy of Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening. If you cut them nicely around designs – and perhaps add a pretty ribbon bow – they can make lovely personalized gifts and tags, too!
Anybody have other ideas to share?
