Magnetic Bookmark Tutorial

I would love to share how to make this easy and useful magnetic bookmark today.

I had these paper pads for a long time and I thought they were the perfect size for creating many bookmarks of various designs. I wanted to make some for my neighbors who brought us dinner after my procedure: a little extra with a thank you note. Also, I am going to see my family in Japan soon. I always love to have some small gifts for my friends when we get together.

{You will need}

Thick scrap book papers with different designs
Thin magnet with adhesive
Cutting tool

{How to}

1. My papers were 6" x 6". I cut the papers 2" wide. Now you have three 2"x 6" strips. If you are using regular size papers such as 8 1/2"x 11" or 12"x 12", you can cut it to make it into the same size as mine or make up different size strips.

2. Fold the strip in half.

3. Cut the magnet about 1/2" to 3/4".

4. Stick the magnets to the paper centered at the ends.

5. Now they are ready to enjoy!

I usually have several books I am reading laying around in the house or in my car. It is nice to have a stack of these bookmarks. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today. Thank you for visiting!

Note: I will be gone till the middle of this month (I will be in Japan, Yeah!!). Stay tuned for my post about my Japan trip! :)


  1. Sachiko, thanks for the bookmark tutorial and have a lovely time in Japan with your family. I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

  2. Really cute! and, so simple. Great idea for a quick project or gift.
