Project instructions: Begin by picking out your favorite color construction paper. Then, cut out two-three inch and six inch rectangles from the construction paper. Next, cut a small hole in one of your rectangle bookmarks. Cut your picture down to fit the rectangle bookmark. Make sure your face is showing through your small hole in the bookmark.
Decorate one side of each book mark. Color a neat design or write something special. Now, glue the photo to the uncut, uncolored side and glue the bookmark with hole on top, after aligning the picture. After, cutting down your self-laminating sheet down to the size of you bookmark. Carefully apply the laminate, punch a hole in the top to add a tassel made of yarn. Finally, cut the yarn into six inch pieces or to your desired length.
