Read on to find out how to make your own bookmarks.

 

If you have any greeting cards that you have saved because you love the pictures these would be fabulous.

 

Cut the cards up into bookmark shapes, about 8 inches high by 2 inches wide (21 x 5.5 cm). Punch a hole in the centre at the bottom and thread through and knot a piece of ribbon for some tails .[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”524″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]If you would like to print some off, find some in the downloads. I like to print them off on a plain white, light weight card (from the art supply section in the £ shop) or any art or paper supply shop. One sheet makes 5 bookmarks.

 

To make your bookmarks super powerful, take a piece of regular plain paper and fold it in half, then each half 3 times, then stick it to the back of your bookmark so it fits like a chunky fan.

 

Use a hole punch to make a hole in the centre at the bottom and thread through and knot a piece of thin ribbon for some tails.

 

Fantastic you are now ready to play the game.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”525″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]This can be for one player, two players or as many people as you have bookmarks for!

 

Each player will need a bookmark for each of the other players! If you have say 4 people playing each player will need 3 bookmarks to write on.

 

If it is for one player, write on the back of your bookmark the things that come to mind, that you are especially grateful for about you, yourself!

 

“How you have always been there for you, in the dark hours when there is no one else. How you iron your T shirts and fold them neatly before putting them away in the drawer

 

How you make the best cup of tea like no one else can and nearly always have your favourite biscuits in the tin.”

 

For a couple, write on the back of a bookmark,

 

To ———– Thank you and write about the things for which you are especially grateful for about that player. Things they have said or done that you appreciate.

 

When you have finished writing, exchange the bookmarks and it is yours to keep and treasure. For a couple the expanding bookmark is especially powerful.

 

For 3 or more players, write one players name at the top, one for each of the other players, and don’t forget to write your name at the bottom before you exchange bookmarks.

 

A bookmark is also something you can send as a gift to someone just because you love them or to thank them for a special kindness. Print off some spares ready to send and keep them in your Gratitude Game Box.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”526″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row]
