Book markers?

Does anyone make some really nice book markers that can be used for gifts? I'd love to see some pic's or instructions.

Joann...I started making some with my grandaughter...I enjoyed it so much I started making them to share.

I use card stock. I double (glue with glue stick) to pieces together. And cover with clear contact paper.

here are some we made.

I cut them 2 inches wide and about 8 inches long.

The leaves and the sunflower on the left are stencils (the brass kind for embossing) the rest are freehand.

You can also make beaded bookmarks (sorry, no pictures). Take some waxed linen (you can get this at Wal-Mart - comes in black and white) and put beads at either end (no beads that would be in the book). I make them long enough to use in my bible.

I save all the cards I receive because most of them are just too pretty to throw. Lots of them have neat front pages which you can save and just double them in half vertically,use a few drops of glue and glue the sides together. punch a hole in the top and add a ribbon streamer. I use the 1/4 inch ribbon. You an also attach small pieces of old jewerly to the ribbons. Sometimes I cover the bookmark with clear contact paper. Usually you can make the card by cutting off the greeting at the top of the card.

I have cut cards into strips to make bookmarks. I have a bunch of them ready to grab. This is such a fun project to do with children. It would be nice to think of a new "gimmick" that would make them even more useful. I have a vision f a multi page one with ribbons like the octopus extension cords, lol, but not sure how to keep them from getting in eachothers way.
