Mother's Day Mod Podge Photo Bookmarks

Looking for a last minute DIY gift for Mom or Grandma for Mother's Day?  What Mom doesn't love pictures of their little ones?  Make her a personalized photo bookmark!  Easy to do with supplies you most likely already have on hand.  The kids will love to help as well.  You will need small photos, paper bookmarks or just cardstock, a single hole punch, mod podge, and ribbon.

I printed my photos off my computer using the contact sheet size.  They were perfect for my photo bookmarks.  If you don't have precut bookmarks, cut your decorative card stock to the size you want.  Punch a hole into the top, which is where you will put your ribbon later.  Now decide where you would like to place your photos.

Add a layer of mod podge to the back of your photos and put them in place.  Allow them to dry for a short time.  Now you will apply a layer of mod podge over your entire bookmark.  Allow to dry completely and add another layer of mod podge.  Repeat until you feel your photos are adequately attached.

After your bookmark is dry, loop or tie your ribbon through the hole you punched.  You may want to cinge the ends of your ribbon to keep them from fraying.  To do this just hold the ends close to a candle or lighter flame.  You will see the ends cinge.  They do not need to touch the flame.  

Your bookmark is ready to hold Mom's place in her book as well as hold her heart as she gazes on her little ones.  This would also make a great gift topper with a sweet note and the date on the back.
