I've been using the same old, tattered bookmark I got for free from a work event about five years ago. It's great but I only have the one. I decided it's time to upgrade and maybe I should purchase a couple of bookmarks but the thing is, I have very specific needs. I need it to STAY PUT! It needs to have some sort of mechanism to hook around the book. A lot of bookmarks are, well, limp, and just hang out in between the pages. I don't want that in a man and I don't want that in a bookmark! Wow, ok moving on! So whenever I need anything crafty I turn obviously, to etsy and I found some great new options! Which of these do you like?
This one I like because a. It's only $2 and I am cheap b. the design is kind of olde worlde and c. it's magnetic so will not fall out of the book - sold! To check out this one and other designs by this artist check them out here!
First of all these bookmarks are metal so they are incredibly beautiful and stunning in an artsy kind of way and you get 6 in a pack so you can either keep them all for yourself and represent the world traveller that you are (or reflect through you're reading!) or give some in a book as a gift that goes to one of these locales. The bookmarks are stamped with 6 major world cities and being that they are made of metal are sturdy enough to stay put I think and last a long time. So cool looking, check 'em out!
I also found this one. Yep it's a chicken! I don't know, I have a weird thing about chickens. I think they are really cute. There are a bunch in my kitchen. Slap one on a bookmark and I'm going to think it's really cute too apparently! With this the metal stick would lay in the book and the little chicken charm would hang out which is freaking adorable! You can check it out here!
So which do you like of the above and more importantly, what do you look for in a bookmark?!
