DIY bookmarks using paper clips, twist ties and labels

Track pages for lesson plans, or when reading the same book to several classes with these simple to make DIY bookmarks.


You can make these bookmarks with supplies you already have around the house.


Paper clips
Twist ties

1. Wrap the twist tie around one end of the paper clip.


2. Cut the labels in half.


3. Wrap the label around the twist tie. Use the marker to write on the bookmark.


4. Use scissors to round the corners, if you like.

5. Repeat for additional bookmarks.

Additional books

You can use the bookmarks to mark your stopping place in a single book for multiple class sessions — so you always know where to begin again. Or you can use the bookmarks for class lesson planning, marking a poem or passage you want to share with students each day of the week.
