This is a marvelous book. You think a book mark is a book mark. You have paper or maybe crochet types. But there's more than just paper. I saw at least four I want to make just flipping thru this. The feather one is first on my list. I know a few people will get one tucked into their Christmas card.

I love these gorgeous bookmarks! I bet these bookmarks will inspire me to read more.

These bookmarks are so cute! I usually just use a random scrap of paper, but these projects have inspired me to step up my game!

The only thing I dislike about this collection is how to narrow down which bookmarks I want. So many pretty and fun options.
