Mom bookmark

In this project, you are going to make a two sided, personalized, bookmark which will contain up to three letters. Usually, the three letters will be a person’s initials, however, if you prefer, it could be a three letter name such as: “PAT.”

In order to provide a means to have any combination of three letters, it will be necessary to print the bookmark in three passes through the printer, one pass for each letter.

Printer Tips

  • If your printer has a sheet feeder, start with just a single sheet of paper, or card stock.
  • If you have a tractor feed, before you start, note how the paper is initially positioned.

Second Letter

After printing the first pass, put the printed page back in the input tray. If you are using a tractor feed, roll the paper backwards and position the paper exactly how it was positioned originally. Select the second letter from the following choices. The letter will be displayed in a new tab and it can be printed from your browser. After printing, return to this tab and move on to the next letter.

Completing Your Bookmark

  1. After printing, return to this tab.
  2. You will now have a black-and-white image of your bookmark.
  3. Color the bookmark to suit yourself.
  4. Cut out the bookmark outside of the border lines allowing about a quarter-inch margin. Do not cut the two halves apart!
  5. Fold the bookmark and glue the two halves together.

You now have a completed bookmark. If you want to make it more durable, you can laminate it between two pieces of self adhesive laminating sheets. These laminating sheets can be purchased at an office supply store.

Laminating Your Bookmark

  1. Cut out two pieces from a laminating sheet. The dimensions should be about one-half inch larger in width and height than your book mark.
  2. Remove the protective backing from one piece.
  3. With the adhesive side up, place your bookmark, centered, on the sheet.
  4. Remove the protective backing from the second piece.
  5. Place it, adhesive side down, on the bookmark.
  6. Press the sheets together around the edges.

If you did not get the sheets perfectly aligned, the quarter inch border is adequately large enough to allow for some trimming.

That’s it, your bookmark is complete!
