Let’s Taco ’bout Reading DIY Magnetic Bookmarks
Summer is about half over and my kiddo has hit the summer boredom stage. If your child feels the same way, these bookmarks might help get them in the mood to read! I know a cute little bookmark was always a motivator for me as a kid. These are super easy to make with my free design, so let’s get into the tutorial.

Let’s go over the steps for these DIY Magnetic Bookmarks…
Download my free file. Upload it in Cricut Design Space as a Print Then Cut File.
Add an offset using the offset tool. Click Apply.
Change the offset color to white. Attach the offset to the bookmark image and flatten.
Resize to fit your paper.
Click continue and print it on glossy photo paper from your inkjet printer.
Once printed, trim the holographic laminate sheet to fit within the registration marks. Apply the holographic laminate sheet on top, and pass it through the laminator with the cold setting to add pressure and better adhesion.
Load the deep point blade into your machine. Then, load the paper on your mat and select the magnetic paper settings under materials. Cut.
Remove the bookmarks from the mat. Fold the bookmarks in half. Select 2 square magnets. Before applying them to your bookmark, make sure the two squares attract. Remove the backing and attach the magnet to the bookmark as shown in the video.
And that’s it! What do you think? Aren’t they adorable?
I hope you give this project a try, and if you do be sure to tag me on social media!
