Ever worked on a project involving cardstock and you end up with all sorts of random bits of cardstock strips? I was recently working on making a dashboard for my planner and had all these colorful bits of paper and acetate. I started thinking, what could I make with these extras?!
Bookmarks! Lots of them. And here we go with this super quick tutorial on how you can make your own :)
The following list has all the supplies and tools you'll need to make this project.

Step 1 (Quotes Over Blue)
To make the acetate bookmark, you will need two equally sized pieces to work with - the acetate which will go on front and a nice cardstock to go behind it. I recommend a solid colored cardstock so that the design on the acetate can really show through.
To secure it all together, cut two pieces of washi tape that are a little longer than the bookmark lengthwise. Attach half the width on one side and fold over to the back. Do this for both left and right sides of bookmark. Then repeat with 2 additional washi strips for the top and bottom to reinforce the side washi tapes.
Step 1 (Gold Pineapple)
Use your main decorative washi tape and place in center of cardstock.
Place washi on left and right of center washi to reinforce. That’s it!
Step 1 (Floral Diagonals)
This works better with a patterned piece of cardstock paper. It’ll be easier to measure where to place the washi tapes to make a diagonal design. Place washi at regular intervals in a diagonal.
Decorate with matching stickers. Get creative! Match the stickers with the washi or use contrasting colors. That’s all :)
