DIY Back to School Bookmarks

 

Hey everyone! Getting in the back to school spirit? Here is a fun DIY activity that can be used as a bookmark or even name labels for school supplies! I used the Faber-Castell Mixed Media Kit!

Faber-Castell Mixed Media

The first step is to do an outline sketch with the watercolor pencils. I decided to do a pencil BUT you can pick whatever shape you want!

After you are finished with the watercolor pencil then you add water to blend the colors!

Once the paper is dry to can add details with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens. I added my name and some outlining to the pencil.

Pencil Name Tag

To finish you can laminate your bookmark/nametag (if you have access to something like that) or you can cover it with clear packing tape to make it last longer!
