Hold Your Place in Style - Step 1

1. To make one, first cut a 1 3/4- by 8-inch strip of colorful card stock.

2. Holding the strip horizontal, fold each half of the strip down at a right angle at the strip's center, as shown.

3. Next, use shapes cut from colored paper or card stock to create a design for your bookmark that's about 3 1/2 inches across.

4. Glue the pieces together, adding details with markers, if you like, then glue your design across both folded halves of the card stock strip, securing them together.

5. Be sure to let your bookmark dry completely before using it in your latest read.
