Paint Chip Bookmark

I found a random paint chip that I no longer needed, so I turned it into a bookmark. 

And then I put the bookmark in Trevor's library book and waited to see how long it would take him to notice. 

As it turned out, it did not take long at all. Within about an hour, he asked why there was a 'pom pom' near his library book. He got the book, opened it, and discovered the bookmark. He loved it. And now he knows the difference between a 'pom pom' and a 'tassel.' 


Paint Chip Bookmark


  • Paint chip
  • Coordinating yarn
  • Black cardstock
  • Black letter stickers
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Hole punch


  • Trim the paint chip to the desired size, then cut the cardstock 1/4" larger in both dimensions. Adhere the paint chip to the cardstock. 
  • Punch a hole at the top of the cardstock-backed paint chip. 
  • Add the letter stickers to the bookmark. You can spell out I {heart} U like I did, or use the person's initials. 
  • Make a tassel using the yarn. You can use different colors like I did, or just choose one color. I followed these directions to make my tassel.
