Favourite Quotations Bookmarks


Designing your own bookmarks makes a very lovely, but inexpensive gift.

You will need:

  • A favourite quotation of the recipient (or quotation from their favourite book)
  • Computer and printer
  • Printer paper
  • Laminating pouches
  • Laminater
  • Scissors or paper trimmer

What to do:

  1. Using an auto shape tool draw a rectangle a suitable size and shape for a bookmark (I made mine 21cm x 7.5cm) and make the border narrow and a pale grey.
  2. Type out your chosen quotation and add clip art or images of your choice.   Print.
  3. Place the paper into the laminating pouch  (if you want to ensure they are waterproof cut them out along the grey line first).
  4. Laminate.
  5. Cut out along the grey line (if you cut them out before laminating them leave a few millimetres of plastic around the edge to ensure they are sealed).
