Materials For Stained Glass Bookmarks
For this project you'll need watercolor paper, a ruler, pencil, non-washable black crayon, liquid watercolor, paintbrushes, scissors, laminator and laminating pouches, hole punch, and ribbon.
Watercolor paper is really important - don't try to substitute copy paper or construction paper. We love using liquid watercolors; you could also use regular watercolors, though the color wouldn't be as vibrant.
Prepare And Paint Your Paper
Using a ruler, draw criss-cross lines over your paper. Go over the lines heavily in black crayon. Make sure your crayon is not washable or the watercolor paint will smear the lines!
Paint the different sections of your paper in different colors. Try not to have the same color touching.
Flip your paper over and draw bookmarks to cut out in pencil. Draw one line across the middle lengthwise, and then divide the paper into strips approximately 1" wide. Cut them out!
Won't these bright and cheerful bookmarks put a smile on your face whenever you crack open your book to read? They're a simple craft for your kids, and a great gift to give - add them to your "to-make" list!
