DIY Bookmarks

I love all things handmade because of the creativity and effort that goes behind it. I made these bookmarks for the Bazaar but you could do it as a project with your little ones. These would make for especially thoughtful and cute Eid gifts or just gifts in general.

Here is what you will need:

Pre-cut Bookmarks, readily available at Michael's craft stores.
A hole punch
Decorative stamps (optional)
Stamp ink (optional)
A decorative hole punch (optional)

Here is what it cost me; don't forget I made these to promote my business (I was willing to spend a few $):
Bookmarks: $3.99 for a pack of 50
Ribbon: $1.00 on clearance (I bought 2 styles)
A hole punch: $2.99
Decorative stamps $1.50 each ( I bought 2)
Stamp Ink: $1.50
Decorative hole punch : $1.49 on clearance, normally $14.99

Total: $14.97

You could skip some of the steps like the stamps and have your kids decorate with paints/markers. A cute idea would be to use alphabet stickers to personalize the book marks.

Do not forget to listen and recite Surah Kahf today. Please remember my family and I in your prayers today. Happy Friday from ours to yours!
