I knew I wanted to get my mom a book for Mother's Day. I recently read The Pearl by John Steinbeck (has anyone read this?). Not really a fuzzy, warm, feel good book, but a great story with a great message. So I got that and decided to have the kids help make some bookmarks to go along with it (kind of a repeat... oh well... these are new and improved!)
The kids each designed one bookmark. Then I scanned them into the computer and printed them with colorful borders.
I got them laminated like I did last time at Kinko's, then cut them out. This time I cut out a little hole at the top and tied some embroidery floss on.
For some reason having cute bookmarks makes me want to read that much more :)
