Hey, non-Kindle users, we’ve got a very serious question for you: How do you remember what page you were on? We generally use anything and everything to mark where we left off — concert tickets, a random scrap of paper or even a dog-eared corner. It’s time to start marking your pages in style; especially with all those great summer reads you’ve got lined up. These adorable DIY bookmarks are super easy to create. Plus, they make a very thoughtful gift for bookworms. But the best part? Everything you need to make these pretty page-savers is probably already in your home.
