DIY Upcycled Bookmarks

Upcycle those used garden variety cereal boxes, drink boxes, etc. to create stylish bookmarks for you or your students.


Items to Gather:

  • Cardboard boxes (cereal boxes, granola bar boxes, drink boxes etc.)
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon
  • Colored paper (optional)


Step 1: Collect a variety of used boxes.  Cereal boxes or any type of box that packages food work very well.

Step 2: Break the box down so that you can easily cut the desired bookmark size.

Step 3: Cut the box to the desired size.  The strips below were cut to be 2" in width.

Step 4: Leave cardboard as is, creating a place for students to decorate themselves, or cover with colored paper of your choice.

Step 5: Punch a hole on one end, and thread ribbon through for an extra touch.


Other Tips/Suggestions:

Laminate the bookmarks for durability.
Create a hall pass or library pass to match your classroom decor.


Have fun expressing your creativity!
