(Book)marking a Tale of Romance
If you are a Twilight fan, an appropriately-themed bookmark is a perfect addition to your book collection. The nice thing is that you can make your favorite kind of Twilight bookmark without having to pay a lot of money. Here are three DIY bookmarks you can make to keep your place the next time you reread the story!
What Are the Twilight Book Covers?
The colors red and black have come to be associated with the Twilight theme. The covers of the novels are mostly colored red and black with some white. These will be the colors for these DIY projects. If you prefer other colors, the colors white and blue can also be associated with Twilight, and the colors white and red has also been to match it as well. There is truly no limitation on color preference, after all, Bella always refers to Forks as moss-colored green, and the Cullen’s eyes are gold. As for the book covers, they have a black backdrop with a picture belonging to each title. For those who need reminding of the book cover images, here it is.
Book Cover Images:
- Twilight: Pale hands holding out a red apple.
- New Moon: Tulip losing a petal. The tulip is red and white.
- Eclipse: Red ribbon coming apart.
- Breaking Dawn: Chessboard, displaying a white rook and red pawn.
1. Twilight Ribbon Bookmark
This one is a creative bookmark that will hold the place where you are reading. The red ribbon is reminiscent of the Eclipse ribbon.
What You'll Need:
- Hair Tie
Measure the red ribbon. I like to do it two lengths of the front cover of the book I am reading. Choose the desired book of your choice.
Take hair tie and sew on one end of ribbon over it.
Sew a button on the other end. I chose a fancy button, but a flat button is easier to attach a picture like we will do in the next step.
Use a Twilight sticker to stick to the button.
Choose the spot of the novel of your choice where you've stopped reading and place the bookmark inside. Pull the hair tie over the button on the front cover of book.
2. Lollipop Bookmark
This is an easy DIY. All you need is a lollipop stick and black paint.
Take lollipop sticks and paint them black. Let them dry.
Attach and paint the front covers of the Twilight series onto the tops of lollipop sticks. There are those who have used actual miniature pieces of doll house products or polymer clay. I used paint and little pieces of felt. I used a tiny red ribbon for the Eclipse bookmark.
3. Breaking Dawn Bookmark
What You'll Need:
Cut a piece of black felt 19.5 cm by 7 cm.
Cut the shape of the rook chess piece out of white felt. I drew the shape onto white felt first to cut out, but you may print out the rook chess piece from the internet to the desired size. Then, glue the rook onto the black felt.
Take red ribbon 14" in length and attach it to the back of the bookmark with a glue gun.
Slip in the tassel. You can find little tassels sold in craft stores. I got mine from the graduation section of the Dollar Tree.
Glue gun the rest of the excess ribbon down the front of bookmark.
There you have it! Three fun DIY Twilight-themed bookmarks. Enjoy!
