I’m in a bookclub and read most of the books on my IPad, but occasionally it’s nice to pick up the real thing and enjoy the paper and print and it’s for those occasions that I made this little cut file.
Who knows? One day bookmarks may be extinct! I doubt it though – we have a couple of members that much prefer “real” books and wouldn’t dream of reading electronically and I’m sure there are many other people who feel the same!
Years ago, we cut the corners off of old envelopes and slipped them over the corner of our page to keep our place. That’s my inspiration today, except it’s now in pretty paper!
The great thing about these is they take so little paper that you can use up some of your scraps from other projects to make a bunch of these and keep them near the bookcase.
I made up a couple in paper and one in cardstock. I prefer the paper versions – the cardstock seemed to slip off the corner quite easily where as the paper stayed put. I used thin double sided tape to join the tab to form the little triangular sleeve.
I’m going to leave a few of these on my husband’s Bed side table – he reads lots of paperbacks and he uses all sorts of things as bookmarks: old tickets, old receipts, boarding passes, Tissues (clean – thankfully!) but I still like my option better 🙂
