Paint Swatch Bookmarks

This is such a cute little project. I really wish I’d thought of it, but I didn’t. I picked this idea up from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs and I think it’s genius!

Here is what you’ll need:

These little bookmarks are so easy to make, I dutifully employed my eight-year-olds.

Punch a hole near the top center

fold a length of twine or ribbon in half and thread the loop through the hole

thread the cut ends back through the loop

and here is what you’ll end up with

Which is much better than what we had previously been using

Ahhh…much better!

PS If you haven’t read the Little House books since you were a kid, you should consider reading them again. They are excellent and really make you quite thankful to be living in the days of insulated houses and grocery stores and automobiles. At the same time, the books also harken back to a simpler time of shared meals by a cookstove, family togetherness and the days where it was a treat to be able to go into town once a week. I highly recommend them!

  1. Kim,

    We also LOVE these books. Have you read Farmer Boy yet?? We listened to it on our recent trip to VA…boy did they ever put away the food! Fun story:).
