Pencil Bookmarks

Hello Readers,

Today, I thought I’d show you my handmade pencil bookmarks I offer at my signings. As a writer I love pens in fun colors, notebooks, tablets, and the pencil. I used to have a pencil pillow I made in home-ec while in high school and regret getting rid of it.

Since I scrapbook (every blue moon or so) I wondered if I could make a pencil out of scraps. I measured a store bought bookmark and made a template for the base and then cut separate pieces for the eraser, metal ring, yellow barrel, and wood. Kind of cute!

I add a label of marketing information and put it on the backside of the bookmark. This way the front looks nicer.

What do you think? If you’d like to make your own bookmarks, let me know in the comments and I’ll send you the measurements I used.
