Simple Homemade Christmas Gifts 5- Bookmarks

It is always brings me so much joy to do projects that reuse and repurpose everyday disposable objects and materials. Today’s homemade Christmas gift project-  we’ll learn to make bookmarks out of paint colour swatches, shopping bags and old bedsheets.
Warning: Project might turn out so beautiful- you might be tempted to keep it for yourself. So don’t hold back; gotta spread the love around. And these bookmarks will surely make a person feel loved and vibrantly a part of your life.
What a great way to repurpose those paint color swatches. If you have lots of them, that means you probably had some major reno project this year and it’s a nice way of sharing that part of your year with those close to you. Perhaps it can also be an invitation to check out the newly renovated space, eh?
