Hi there, Kenarry readers! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m excited to be back again this month with another simple kids’ craft. I recently shared a corner bookmark felt craft to help introduce kids to sewing. Well, I have another bookmark craft that is perfect for using up some of those paper scraps in your craft room!

Easy Craft for Kids

I tend to save bits and pieces of everything, just in case. Fabric, scrapbook paper and card stock, ribbon. They all go into a box for those scrappy type projects where I need just a little piece of something. Well, that box is starting to get a little too full, so I thought it’d be fun to use up some of the bigger pieces of card stock to make some bookmarks!

The supplies you need to make washi tape bookmarks



  1. Trim the paper scraps into long rectangles. I made mine about 2 inches wide by 6 inches tall.
  2. Punch a hole in the paper towards the top.
  3. Use different colors and patterns of washi tape to decorate the bookmark.
  4. Personalize the bookmark with a fun saying or word using alphabet stamps.
  5. Cut a piece of ribbon about 4-5 inches long and tie it onto the bookmark.

DIY Bookmark Ideas

If you are running low on creativity, don’t worry! I’ve gotcha covered. Here are some decoration ideas and themes you can try on your bookmarks.

  • Disney Bookmarks – pick out your favorite movie. Use washi tape that resembles the colors from that movie. For example, gold and brown for Beauty and the Beast or teal and green for The Little Mermaid.
  • Superhero – Make bookmarks based on your favorite super hero – like Blue and Black for Batman.
  • Complimentary Colors – Pick out complimentary colors from the color wheel and just use tape with those colors.
  • Rainbow – Pick out tapes in the ROYGBIV pattern.

These washi tape bookmarks are a great craft to make with a larger group of kids because the supplies are fairly inexpensive and every one can put their own creative touch on it!

While you have your washi tape out, why don’t you make a few Custom DIY Notebook Covers to add a fun element to a kid’s journal or school notebook!
