Printable Coloring Bookmarks

Printable Coloring Bookmarks (3)

I can’t believe it is August already! Where does the time go? Pretty soon (in a few weeks… yikes!), school will be starting again. In honor of the new school year, my amazing and talented brother designed some fun free printable coloring bookmarks for you to download. He made three beautiful designs.

Back to School Bookmarks (650x412)


Here is an example of one of the designs and the different ways you can color it.  You can also give them as-is with some crayons or markers.  Package them in some clear treat bags for a special handmade gift.  I suggest printing them on the back of an old cereal box or sturdy cardstock.

You can punch a hole in them with a craft punch or hole punch and add a colorful yarn tassel or ribbon.  Give it away plain…
