Paint sample bookmarks might just be the easiest craft ever! Don't worry if you don't have any paint samples handy; you can always pick up a few the next time you're at the hardware store.
This is all you need to make a bookmark:
My paint swatches were really wide, so I cut them first to get a narrow bookmark shape as well as to get rid of the text on the side. Next, I punched a hole in the top of the paint sample and tied a tassel through it for a super simple bookmark. Ta-da! It makes a nice little bookmark, though it's rather plain so I to added a little something extra.
I printed some of my favorite quotes on a piece of 8.5 x 11 inch vellum paper. (It's hard to see, but this is what it looked like before I cut the quotes.) I cut each quote just a little narrower than the paint swatch, hole punched it, and tied it all together with a tassel.
