Christmas Bookmarks – Perfect Gift for book lovers

Make felt Christmas bookmarks to go with Christmas books.

Christmas Bookmarks - Easy Tutorial

Every Christmas I like to get a couple of books for my daughters as gifts. My husband and I love reading to them and watching the excitement in their eyes as the stories unravel.

Since Gabrielle reads now, we decided to get her books from a series. Figured this way, she’ll be even more excited about finishing the book and knowing that there’s a second book that follows.

Emanuelle will be getting these fun books:

Gabrielle will be getting The Templeton Twins Books:

The Templeton Twins Make a Scene

Since they will be getting these at Christmas, I made them Christmas bookmarks!
