Tutorial ~ Make your own Bookmarks

These fun and colourful Bible bookmarks were whipped up for our teenagers. They are only about 2cm wide and look really cool. For want of a better name I called them bookmark skinnies. Or bookmark thins. I’ve kept them really simple for this tutorial. It’s easy to choose your own dimensions or jazz them up once you’ve got the hang of it. You are welcome to download any of these samples for your own personal use. Just right click and save. Four of them sit side by side on ONE piece of 4×6 photo paper. That makes it easy to print off a whole heap to send to your sponsored child and ask them to share them around with family and friends.

It is important to teach them that they have something to GIVE too!

Print on 4×6 photo paper, cut and laminate for best results.

Okay, now for the HOW-TO. These bookmarks are super easy to make:

1.  Getting started: Open up a blank document in a program like MS Publisher, Photoshop or Open Office Draw. These instructions are for MS Publisher. Set page size (in this case) to 4×6. Choose portrait or landscape.

1. Add a Frame – 4 or 2?  Insert 4 rectangle shapes for bookmark skinnies. These colourful frames were about 2.1 cm wide. Insert 2 rectangle shapes about 4.5 cm wide for normal size bookmarks. Leave a small gap between them. Choose colour and border if you wish.

2. Add a Bible verse: Insert a text box inside each frame. Like so. Type in your Bible verse. Choose colour and font. Adjust size and position until it looks just right.

3. Print.

Some Extra Jazz for your Bookmarks

1. Personalise it. Add your child’s name – simply insert another text box. And maybe a different font.

2. Add some clipart. Is there a special occasion coming up – birthday? Christmas? Graduation? Doing a theme? Find some matching clipart or a photo.

3. Add your child’s photo. Give them a buzz to see a bookmark with their photo on it.

4. Add your own photo or a family photo. Our kids like looking at us as much as we like looking at them.

5. For something different, try a strip of photos or images.

6. Experiment with different sized or shaped bookmarks. Why not set your page to A4 and try some GIANT bookmarks (2 per page) and fill them with Bible verses for something fun!
