Favorite Reads Photo Bookmark

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Thank the teacher for making reading fun with a bookmark that lists your child's new favorite titles. Tuck in a gift card to a bookstore, and she'll be sure to read your message loud and clear.


  • Card stock or thick scrapbooking paper
  • White paper
  • Photograph of your child
  • Glue stick
  • Markers


Trim the card stock to the desired size (ours measures 3 by 9-1/4 inches), and cut the white paper slightly smaller. Cut the photograph into a heart shape and glue it in place on the white paper, then use a marker to add the message and book list.

Turn over the white paper and run glue around the outside edge, leaving 3-1/2 inches bare on one side. Press the sheet onto the card stock, then insert a gift card, as shown.
