You could also choose to laminate your designs once finished. This will guarantee a longer-lasting mark, but it is not required.

Best Paper To Use For These Printable Bookmarks

You could absolutely use standard printer paper. Often times, I personally do this when I am creating them for my own children! However, you could also choose a sturdier cardstock. This will ensure a sturdier booker that won’t break apart easily.

Remember, crayons, markers, and colored pencils all are awesome for decorating your bookmarks. 

These coloring pages are great for a rainy day activity you want to keep your kiddos entertained as they are stuck indoors.

Can I Turn This Into A School Gift?

Absolutely! This print is a really fun gift idea for your child to take to school to gift their classmates. A non-food gift idea that is great for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, a birthday party gift, etc. 

Consider adding two crayons and a bit of Washi tape to secure the coloring sticks to the back of your package. If gifting, consider opting for the sturdier cardstock paper choice.
