School is over for the year in our school district, and to celebrate I took our first day of school photo and last day of school photo and made them into bookmarks for the kids to use while reading all summer long! I think this would make a wonderful teacher gift, too – just use class photos!
DIY Bookmark Gift for Kids or Teachers
These DIY bookmarks are very easy. You can arrange the photos with Photoshop or a free service like Canva. Then print them out and laminate them (or print on cardstock if you do not have a laminator). We have had this laminator (affiliate link; buy it while on sale – it frequently is, including today) for several years now, and it has been great for all sorts of projects!
Do you have a fun DIY bookmark idea to share?
