How-To: Bowtie Paperclip Bookmarks

Craft & Design

One of my favorite times of the day is when I slide in to bed and grab my book and start reading. I have an almost impossible time going to sleep if I don’t have a book to read beforehand. These little bowtie paperclip bookmarks from Jessica of How About Orange seem about the most perfect way to make me look even more forward to my most favorite time of day.

    I am a librarian/administrator by trade and a crafter to keep my sanity. I think this idea is adorable, but may I offer one piece of “professional” advice, and not criticism? Paperclips are not good bookmarks to use in public library books. They can damage the paper by tearing it, or creasing it. This is in turn may cause you to incur a fee at your library. So, please use this absolutely adorable idea and make them as gifts for your family and friends, or even as a donation to your local public library to help them with a fund raising to purchase new books. Thank you, I didn’t mean to preach. :)

    That’s a really good point to mention! I wonder if you could wrap some decorative tape around the clip to help prevent tears … Something to consider for sure! Thanks for chiming in. :)
