I actually printed these bookmarks on Astrobrights paper to try to fit the Dr. Seuss-themed color scheme! Since his birthday is today, I thought the ribbon selection (though not necessary) was quite fitting, too!
Here’s a super quick tutorial on how to add ribbon embellishments to your bookmarks!
First, fold a length of ribbon (approximately 9-12inches) in half to form a V shape.
Then, insert the bottom of the V-shaped ribbon into the hole from the back of the bookmark creating a loop on the front.
Finally, pinch each end of the ribbon and tuck it into the loop you created and gently pull. Voila!
While it would work great ANY time of year, this resource would be a huge asset to use during the week of Read Across America, to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Celebration of Learning nights, open house, and more! It’s always a good time to celebrate reading and books!
