Easy Cardstock Bookmarks for Diana

A few weeks ago, my friend Diana posted a little video of mysterious floating hands creating the cutest cardstock bookmarks and asked if someone would make them for her! I volunteered 🙂

I already had everything I needed to make these on hand!

You will need:

-3 to 4 sheets of different colored cardstock, scraps could work (they make theirs from paint chips, which would also work!)

-Scissors

-Exacto knife

-Cutting mat (in my case, a piece of cardboard lol)

-Permanent marker

-Pencil

The video goes pretty quick and doesn’t have any spoken instructions, and I didn’t recognize the language from the actual post, so I watched the video once or twice and decided to wing it!

I started by cutting my cardstock into 2×4 strips.

I hope Diana likes them!
