Got everything? Let's make the magnetic bookmarks! First decide on the width and length of the bookmark. There are no rules here. Once you have your idea, cut the bookmark out of construction paper. Also cut two rectangles, roughly the same size, out of the magnetic sheets with the adhesive. They have to fit on the paper strips.
