Gifts 101: Paint Your Own Bookmarks

Bookmarks are very useful if you want to mark your books without having to damage a page by dog-eating them. However, bookmarks that you can get from the local stores can be a little plain, which is why in this article, we talk about why you should paint your own bookmarks

Bookworms know how important bookmarks are when you want to preserve the quality of your book. Bookmarks are great because you can use anything as a bookmark, but if you’re the kind of person that likes aesthetics, then you may want to consider getting bookmarks that fit your style. 

Aside from that, you can also customize bookmarks by painting them. In this article, we discuss great gifts and why you should paint your own bookmarks. Some people may think that bookmarks are just a piece of cardboard and can be replaced with loose receipts, but other people enjoy having actual bookmarks for their favorite books. 

We enjoy fun DIY projects that we can do during our free time, which is why we want to tell you why painting your own bookmarks is a fun activity to do when you’re bored or need something to do to take up your time. 

Being stuck at home can be boring, which is why we want to give you the best activities that you can do while you’re at home. We love the idea of painting bookmarks because you can always gift them to bookworms that want better bookmarks or want unique markers.

How To Prepare Your Materials

Before we get into why you should paint your own bookmarks, let’s talk about how you should prepare for your painting process. Here are some things that we think can make your painting project easier:

  1. Get watercolor paper: when it comes to watercolor paintings, the quality of your paper matters. If you use any regular paper, it may be too thin and it might absorb the paint, which is why we recommend using watercolor paper for your bookmarks. 

  2. Choose quality watercolor paint: While all watercolors can give quality results, we think it’s easier for beginners to use high-quality watercolor paint sets because they do have better pigmentation, and make it easier for you to get to the color you want.

  3. Choose your inspiration: If you’re new to painting, then you may want to try looking for inspiration for what you’re going to paint. We think there are a lot of great examples for you to try.

Why You Should Paint Your Own Bookmarks 

Now that we’ve gone over some of the things you need to paint your bookmarks, let’s talk about why you should paint your own bookmarks: 

  1. It gives you unique markers: If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t want to have bookmarks that are similar to other people, then you will enjoy these unique bookmark ideas.

  2. It allows you to explore your creative side: Sometimes, we just need to explore our creative side so we can express our feelings. This is particularly useful if you work in a job that doesn’t employ creativity often.

  3. You can give it as a pre-gift to your bookworm friends: If you’re looking for ideas of what would be a good gift for your bookworm friend, then you may want to give them a bookmark that you painted. We think it makes a great pre-gift that you can give along with another gift like a cozy blanket, or their favorite scented candle.
