Personalized animal bookmarks for little readers

July 26, 2022

Forget dog-earing your pages. Make these dog bookmarks instead! (and other cute animals)


I have a whole pack of nieces and nephews I love to spoil, so when back-to-school rolls around, I have my work cut out for me. Thankfully my Cricut makes it easy to find projects that are simple, fun, and that I can personalize for each kid.

All of my siblings are trying to encourage a love of reading in their kids, so this year I decided to make some bookmarks to include in their back-to-school kit.

They all have very different personalities, so I looked in Design Space for a bookmark that included a variety of characters. I was delighted to find a Unicorn, Cat, Dragon, and Tiger projects that I could personalize for each child.

There are 10 kids altogether, so I also needed something I could do in a reasonable amount of time. Each of these should take less than 30 minutes, so it will be easy to squeeze them in as I have a little time over the next few days.

This gray cat looks just like MY gray cat, so I’ll start with this personalized cat bookmark for a nephew who always wants to play with him!

The directions for this project can also be found in Design Space, along with additional information about using Pens.

I can’t wait to see how excited all my little kiddos get for their very own personalized bookmark!
