Make Your Printable Bookmarks to Color
These printable coloring bookmarks come in PDF format and can be downloaded and printed right from your home printer.
Since they’ll be used quite a bit, we recommend printing them on heavy cardstock instead of plain paper because it will give them a bit more sturdiness!
After you print them, you can use crayons, markers, colored pencils, or even watercolors to decorate them. The watercolor colored pencils are especially cool if you’re up for trying a slightly different type of tool!
Once the bookmarks are colored, cut them out along the heavy black outline. Try to make the lines straight or, if you’re feeling especially adventurous, you could use scissors with a designed edge to cut them out.
When the coloring bookmarks are cut out, you can use them as is or fold them in half along the thin black line that’s in the center of the bookmark.
This creates a fun, over-the-page bookmark that tends to be a bit more secure – especially if books are in your backpack or bag.
