Pinterest is another of my go-to sites, like Instagram, for learning about educational materials, backyard gardening, urban farming, art journaling and finding simple, fun projects for when the creative energy needs an outlet.
It has been h-o-t in New England. 90s hot, which means after 9am, I am indoors most of the day....at least until our pool is up and running. I am constantly searching for simple, quick projects that result in something beautiful.
The girls and I picked up some paint samples at Home Depot when we were running errands and turned them into much-needed bookmarks.
These were larger samples so we cut them in half.
We purchased oil based Sharpies that were sold at Home Depot as well. Lilah did not love working with them, but I did. They do not provide great coverage for large areas of space, but perhaps that was due to the waxy coating on the paint samples. For adding embellishments and dots of color here and there they are vibrant, metallic and fun to use.
Add some ribbon and a coat of Mod Podge and these bookmarks will last a very long time!
*Sharpie did not endorse this post but if they should like to in the future, I would be most welcoming to any product they would like me to review!
