(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.

The book covers of the Twilight Saga, each image represents an installment of the story. The Apple, a tulip, red ribbon, and the chess pieces. The covers are mostly red and black.

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:

  • Ribbon
  • Button
  • Hair Tie

Step 1

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.

Measure the red ribbon twice the length of the cover, of the novel of your choice.
