I wanted to make something little to go with some Mother’s Day gifts this year. Although I can’t go into too much detail about the gifts because the receivers might be reading this, I’m sure you can figure out what some of those gifts might be. 😉
Mom- IGNORE THIS POST!
Some bookmarks fit the bill perfectly. They’re so simple, printable, & free! Yet incredibly necessary for avid readers. I went with the ever popular “keep on & carry on” theme.
I made 3 different sets in 4 different colors (goin a little crazy y’all) to share with you.
You can download them all here or copy/save as from the images below or click the pdf links above each pictured set. So many options I know! Be sure to print it 8×10 if you copy/save as.
First, I made the Mother’s Day set. I used 2 different sayings.
I printed them onto a kraft paper card stock to give them a more vintage feel. The only problem was the yellow didn’t show up so well, but the other shades were nice.
I made these ones for myself really!
But they’re great for summer reading & would be a really cute end-of-the-year gift for classmates. The kids could even print & decorate these with stickers to make their summer reading list a bit more exciting.
Or you can just use them for yourself, like I plan too!
Teachers deserve a good end of the year too. How about one of these tied to a Barnes & Noble gift card or a stack of favorite books? You could even put in inside a plastic tumbler & fill it with candy. I think this version is my favorite, those apples are too darn cute!
The ones I’m keeping for myself were printed onto white card stock & the colors showed up much brighter. I punched a hole in a couple & strung short ribbons through them for an extra touch.
Don’t forget about your moms either! A sweet handwritten note on the backside of these will make mom think of you every time she opens her latest read or favorite book.
What’s on your summer reading list? Any suggestions?
I’ll be linking up at my favorite places, see them all here!
