Easy homemade bookmarks using brown leaves from Doodles and Jots. Makes a nice gift along with a book! Just cut some heavy paper into bookmark shapes. Then paint green tempera paint onto a leaf. Place the leaf upside down on the bookmark, top with scrap paper, and apply pressure (I used a roller). They you can add decorations. I used colored paper to make bulbs and garland. That’s it!
