How to Make Colour Wrap Bookmarks

These little yarn wrapped lolly sticks can be made in minutes, are a great little gift to pop in with a book and are a fantastic conversation starter! Stamped with book titles that include a colour which in turn corresponds with the yarn wrapped around the end, they are reminiscent of yarn swatches and plant markers. These would also be a fun quick make to create at a book club or a token gift for a fellow bibliophile!

How to Make Bunting from Children's Books

As most book lovers will agree the odd book can often succumb to wear. Whether that's over appreciative tiny readers scribbles, soggy pages from reading in the bath, or just general wear and tear from their well worn lives. When this happens its so lovely to make something from those precious pages, if we can't read them anymore that we might as well make something beautiful with them! This fun bunting would be lovely in a nursery or for pretty party decor.
