How To Make Colorful Bookmarks/Gift Tags(Recycling)

Life of a university student is never easy. Keeping heavy books, facing presentations, making assignments on daily basis & sometimes weekly deadlines..oops. It drives me crazy while managing all that stuff. For my syllabus books, Sometimes I have paper strips as bookmark while studying!! But when my crafty mind is active, I make lots of bookmarks for my every book. Today I will show you how I made some bookmarks recently.

I am in a habit of saving shopping/gift tags. A few days back I tried something colorful with these & now these trash tags are in a good use..Yes, Do you want to know How?
Actually these are a few tags which we usually throw after removing packing of our shopping stuff.

First of all pick some acrylic colors & make contrasts in your mind.

Then start working with one color on all tags,(so you will save time from washing your paint brushes on & off) I am using three or four brushes of different tip sizes.

When you will complete your base color on tags,then start making designs, lines, dots & doodles on it. I am working on all these free hand. You can pick any pattern if you want.

I love My Pakistan’s flag bookmark. How nicely it’s giving waves. It’s the Best bookmark idea for a patriot student of Pakistan Studies subject.

After painting & designing all these, leave it until dry totally .

I was having these foaming stickers in my craft stash so I thought to use some here.

My books are also happy with these bookmarks,, I am studying about e-textbook development & writing. An interesting topic no doubt.
