Keepsake bookmarks from vintage book pages - 1 Minute Bible Love Notes

 Make bookmarks from vintage book pages, by 1 Minute Bible Love Notes via I Love That Junk

Vintage page bookmarks are not only a clever idea, they ...
look so cool!


Gail found this fabulous old yellow paged spanish dictionary for a whoppin' $1.50 in Budapest. (I think knowing that makes this project extra cool)

She wanted to do something special with the book but wasn't sure what, until a brainstorm hit. She dusted off her never used $20 laminator found at Costco and got to work. ($20?! I want one!)

She cut out the book pages ...

And laminated them 4 in a row. Perfection! I love that the book ends up being a useful keepsake!

Gail also has another suggestion on how to create the bookmarks without a laminator.

  2. Beyond GABulous! Will definitely do this with old books, scraps of wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, odds & ends of wallpaper. Even scraps of thin of material. Endless ideas! Thanks so much!

  3. I was just thinking the other day... I should put my laminator and my book binder to work and make something with them! Get started on Christmas right now~
    ...love this idea.
