- those my kids have made
- those that I have made
- souvenir bookmarks
- random paper things that have turned into bookmarks
- bookmarks collected at the Book Fair that I run every year
- bookmarks I've had for years, from way way back!
- library receipts
- magazine subscription paper thingies
That's all I can come up with at the moment. BORING! But a librarian friend once told me that the funniest/weirdest bookmark she found in a returned library book was a pantie liner. Hmmmm. Nice.
My favorite bookmarks lately have simply been ones I made on the computer, just for fun, with a clever bookish quote and matching picture, then laminated. I love them.
I also really love the ones I gathered while on our England trip a few years ago. I would love to make it a habit of gathering more bookmarks of the places we visit, but I forget once I'm out and about. Oh, well.
Another idea I had for a bookmark is to take ticket stubs from concerts that I want to remember forever, laminate them, and use them for bookmarks. What do you think?
