What you will make:
In this craft project, you cut out a simple leather bookmark in one
of five designs. The shapes include an eagle and a rocket and are all
about 1" by 6" (3 x 15 cm). Bookmarks always make great gifts and
leather ones last virtually forever. If you are new to leather craft,
start with this project!
For any easier craft, the bookmarks may be printed directly on
cardstock and colored with markers. Or make felt bookmarks following
the same instructions.
