With spring weather finally here, it’s a perfect time to grab a book and enjoy some reading outside. Although e-books are convenient and take less space, I still love the experience of a real book. And when you adhere a bookplate inside the cover and tuck a bookmark in the pages, it becomes even more special.
Whether you are sneaking away for some quiet time or sharing a favorite story with young friends, these happy flower companions will bring spring to the pages of your latest read!
What You Need
- Printable Flower Garden Reading Companions template (download here)
- Card stock
- Full-page sticker sheets
- Glue stick
How To Make The Bookplates
Print the bookplates using card stock or full-page sticker sheets, then cut around the dashed lines.
Write your family’s name on the plate and use a glue stick to attach it inside the cover of your book. Or, if you’re using self-adhesive sheets, simply peel and stick. This is especially nice if you want to give some bookplates as a gift!
How To Make The Bookmarks
Print the bookmarks using card stock and cut around the dashed lines. Tuck a flower friend into your book so you can come back for more reading later!
There’s a Chinese proverb that says “A book is like a garden carried in the pocket”, but with these printable flowers, you’ll also be able to carry a garden in your books.
Happy crafting and reading!
