Cupcake paperclip bookmark craft

Something about Mother’s Day speaks to the crafter in all of us. Perhaps it’s the fact that mothers always appreciate gifts that come from the hands and hearts of their kids (whether those kids are small or grown!). This cupcake paperclip bookmark is one of those things that will make her smile every time she sees it.

This sweet little is a super-thoughtful gift for the mom who loves to lose herself in a good book. One of the most precious gifts a mom can get is personal time, and if she chooses to use hers to read, this bookmark is just right.

Homemade gifts don’t get much easier. With just a couple of supplies and a few minutes, you can whip out enough of these to give to all the moms in your life (Mom, Grandma, neighbor … anyone who likes to read). You can even make them with your kids for a little fun bonding time.

You can even tailor this bookmark to fit whatever your mom’s interested in. Just choose stickers that reflect her passion, whether that’s flowers, animals, travel … you name it.

While this is ideal for Mother’s Day, you can make this craft for any special occasion. (Need a thank-you for a teacher? A gift related to reading is a natural.) Pair this bookmark with a good book, and you have a truly special gift for any lover of literature. Better yet — make a few for each person, because the recipient can use it on planners and calendars, too!
