DIY Watercolored Bookmarks

Hello crafty friends! Today, I want to share with you how to make these Spring themed bookmarks.

These bookmarks are a great gift for book lovers, or donating to your local library, or even just for you to use personally. You can make a batch of them in a short time! Over Imagine Crafts Blog, I share step by step tutorial.

I find that Canson Watercolor Paper 140lb is the best to make bookmarks. They are not only thick and sturdy, but also you can use any craft  techniques with this paper – either simply stamping, or watercoloring, or even mixed media.

Cut a piece of watercolor paper into 6 inch x 1 ¾ inch size. One piece of this 9 x 12 watercolor paper, you can get 10 bookmarks.

You can leave it as a rectangle or you can round the corner with the corner rounder punch. Next, use a ¼ inch hole punch to punch a hole at the center top of the bookmark for ribbon or teasel.

Here are the supplies I used:

Imagine Crafts:


  • Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamp – Dearest Friend Stamp Set

  • Corner Rounder Punch
  • Hole Punch (¼ inch)
  • Fiskar paper trimmer
  • Acrylic stamping blocks
  • Flat paint brush or fan brush
  • Craft Heat Gun
  • Ribbon or twice or tassel
