Make these Beautiful Handmade bookmarks! Your teacher will love this beautiful and unique handmade gift. This project is the perfect way to use up some fabric scraps.

Spring is trying to spring here in the Pacific Northwest, but it’s not very successful. But I’m going to bring a little spring to my son’s teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week in the form of a flower fabric bookmark. They’re so super easy to make, and they’re a great fabric stash buster!
