bookmarks lgMany people feel that books are going to be a thing of the past , because of the popularity of the Kindle, Nook and other electronic book readers. I myself own a Kindle and use it for various tasks, but I still love reading the old fashioned printed book.


Nothing beats sitting in your favorite chair, a book tucked into your lap, turning pages and getting engrossed in a story line. I love the look and feel of paper books and  going to book stores and browsing the shelves. It is truly sad that Borders had to shut down, and Barnes and Noble closed many of its stores because they couldn't compete with digital download sales. Bookstore browsing has always been my favorite "date" with my husband. We both love reading  and it was always fun to look at all the new  books, music and drink coffee in the cafe.


Today's paper craft is a bookmark with a twist. The bookmark has magnets attached to its backside. It is both attractive and stylish and you will never loose you page.  The magnets grip the page firmly and the bookmark stays in place. Make yourself a bookmark, and make some for your friends today! This is a very easy and quick paper craft.

The supply list and instructions are at the bottom of this post.
