Create a one of a kind Zentangle bookmark- with free printable

Well, school is out and kids are bored.  What better way to get them reading than to let them create their own unique bookmark?  Zentangles are basically artistic doodling.  If you’ve ever doodled on a piece of paper you know how relaxing it can be.  So this craft is not just for kids!  This will help kids with hand eye coordination and creativity because in zentangle art creativity is the key! If you would like some suggestions for zentangle patterns to use on your bookmark... is a very good place to start.  Visit Make it easy crafts often for more zentangle printable bookmarks and cards in future posts. 

You will need:

Printer and cardstock paper

Free printable pattern (download)

Fine line markers in colors or just black

Clear contact paper


1.     Download the free bookmark pattern.  There are two on the page, one for boys, and one for girls.  Load your printer with cardstock paper and print.

2.     Use the zentangle designs on the above mentioned website or make up your own.  Be creative.

3.     When you have finished decorating your bookmarks, apply a piece of clear contact paper on the front.  Smooth out any wrinkles.  Turn over and apply another piece of contact paper on the back.  Cut out the bookmarks.
