Yep, I’m back with more glittery DIY fun! After making this pressed flower DIY bookmark last month, it occurred to me that I could make another super awesome bookmark with glitter. Let’s be honest. You’re reading more than one book at a time anyway so you need multiple bookmarks.
When you have the molds, there’s really nothing to making these. That’s leaves a lot of room for creativity and experimentation. You could technically make this any color you want, I simply really like hot pink. Feel free to use your favorite color in lieu of the pink glitter.
Pink Glittery DIY Bookmark Materials
- 2 Part Epoxy Resin Mix
- Small Plastic Cup
- Popsicle Stick for Stirring
- Protective Gloves
- Hot Pink Glitter
- Bookmark Mold (I used this set)
- Dremel with Sanding Attachments (I use this one)
- Ribbon or Yarn
First, put on your protective gloves. Don’t work with your epoxy resin without having them on.
Add 1.5 tbsp of each element of your epoxy resin to your small plastic cup.
- This is enough for a small bookmark. If you are using the large bookmark mold, you may need more resin otherwise it will be a very thin bookmark.
Then stir the epoxy resin with a wooden stick until well combined.
Next, add in your glitter.
- I chose to dump a lot of glitter in mine because I really want the pink sparkle to punch you in the face but you can go for a lighter look. Start with half a teaspoon of glitter and work up from there.
Once your glitter is on the resin, stir it with your stick. Make sure to get the glitter throughout the mixture.
Lastly, pour your resin mixture into your small bookmark mold and let it set for 24 hours.
After your resin has cured, pop the bookmark out of the mold.
Then use a Dremel to sand any rough edges and corners. Also sand inside the hole for the ribbon. You don’t want rough edges to wear through the tassel.
Wipe off any dust from sanding then thread your yarn through the hole in the top of the bookmark.
Finish your bookmark by securely tying the yarn to itself with a knot. Then trim any excess yarn.
I absolutely love how this turned out. It’s so pretty and pink and sparkly. It’s pretty much me in bookmark form, especially with the colorful tassel. Now you too can have a beautiful pink glittery DIY bookmark for marking your place.
This also makes a great gift idea because you can totally whip up a bunch of them at once. You’re only limited by the amount of molds you have. If you have 5 bookmark molds, you can make and cure 5 bookmarks at a time. Then you can give 4 as gifts and keep one for yourself. Now you just have to decide what book to read next.
