Tie-dye Bookmarks
Writer: Urkarshini Reddy

Do you want the pages of your favourite book to be adorned with funky bookmarks? Look no further! Decorated with a pattern resembling tie-dye, these bookmarks can be made with ease! How cool is that?  

What you need: 

  • A sheet of watercolour paper  
  • Watercolours (any colour of your choice) 
  • A dropper  
  • A brush (any size) 
  • A hole punch (or any other sharp object to make a hole)
  • A piece of twine  

What to do:

  1. Firstly, ensure that you have covered your workspace with some newspaper, or use a craft tray, as things can get messy!  
  2. Cut out a rectangular strip (approximately 15cm in height and 4cm wide) from the watercolour paper.  
  3. Wet the brush and dab the paper strip with it.  Splatter a few drops of watercolour onto the bookmark and let it dry.  
  4. Punch a hole on top of the bookmark and  insert the twine through it. You can thread beads or charms through the twine before knotting it.  

Ta-da! Your bookmark is ready! Do not miss the opportunity to flaunt it in front of your friends and show them that along with being a bookworm, you are also artistic!
