It’s Emily from The Benson Street here today! I love to read, but maybe even more than I love to read, I love to make bookmarks. I was so excited to use this faux leather to create these gorgeous faux leather bookmarks. They are great for gifts or for a fun craft night with friends. Oh and did I mention they are simple and easy to make?!? I mean I am a fan of any project that takes a half an hour. Let’s get creating!

How to make the Faux Leather Bookmarks:

  1. Cut out the bookmark. I made mine 1 1/2″ x 6″. I used pinking shears to make the zig-zag, but normal straight scissors would work, too.
  2. Punch a hole with the Hole Punch in the top of the bookmark. Punch it twice — once on each side. You may have to cut it off the rest of the way with scissors depending on how well your Hole Punch works.
  3. Loop the thin ribbon through the hole using whatever colors you choose.
  4. Embellish with other ribbons as desired — or use fancy stitches from your sewing machine. Flowers or any other embellishments would work, too. Have fun with it!

Faux leather is perfect for a bookmark. It is thicker than a paper bookmark so it will last, but thin enough to still fit in a book.
