As I was reading a book the other day, I found an old piece of paper with a to-do list from 10 years ago inside. After contemplating the fact that I had obviously started reading this book before, I realised that I am in a terrible habit of using all kinds of to-do-lists, old envelopes, scrap pieces of paper and even photos as bookmarks!
Sure enough, as I looked through my bookshelf, I found more random pieces of paper throughout my books, not to mention the occasional dog-eared page… a great way to ruin all my nice books!
The craziest part was that I had just launched my Valentine’s Day bookmark pack, and it hadn’t even occurred to me that I could use those pretty new bookmarks instead of old scraps of paper… how silly!
So I immediately started coloring 4 out of the 12 bookmarks in my pack, and I loved them so much that I wanted to make those 4 available to you for free as well. You can still get the whole pack of 12 (for only $1.99) but this free sample page is a great opportunity if you’re not quite ready to spend the $2 just yet 😉
Here’s a quick look at how mine turned out:
I colored these with my new Copic Ciao marker set and added the white highlights using a white Uni-ball Signo gel pen. You can check out my tutorial on adding white highlights with a gel pen here.
I’d love to see how your bookmarks turn out, so grab the free printable bookmark template HERE (or click the picture below) and be sure to post a photo to my Facebook page when you’re done!
