Looking forward to the new school year? I sure am! Every year I do a happy dance around the end of August because I love seeing all the cute new designs for backpacks, notebooks, and pens. Hi! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks. Today’s craft is school themed- we’re making Confetti Bookmarks! Hooray! My son enjoyed these cat bookmarks so much that I made him these to celebrate the start of a new school year!
Ready to make your own DIY bookmarks? Let’s go!
- Tissue paper (Other options: Construction paper, sequins, or circle stickers)
- Clear Contact Paper
- Masking Tape
- Craft Knife
- Cutting Mat
- Paint Chips
- Hole Puncher
Let’s create confetti! Grab several sheets of tissue paper and fold them together. (I folded about 10 sheets in half.) Then, use your hole puncher to create confetti! (Alternatively, you can also use construction paper to create confetti too! I just happened to have tissue paper on hand.)
Cut out two pieces of clear contact paper. Make the second sheet slightly larger than your first. (Having a larger second sheet helps you to easily cover the first sheet of contact paper.) Peel off the backing and tape the smaller sheet of contact paper, sticky side up, onto your work surface.
