It is not always easy to find an easy, “doable” idea for craft night. Yet a craft night can be a great addition to a ladies’ Bible study or book study. This Faux Leather Bible bookmarks craft is simple to customize if someone in your group has access to a cutting machine. If they do not, the designs and bookmarks will need to be cut manually, which is not impossible but will not allow for extremely intricate designs like a cutting machine would create.
This post was originally published on my Bible crafts blog in February 2020. That blog has since been discontinued.
Ideas for using this Faux Leather Bible Bookmarks Craft:
- Use it to kick off a Bible or book study
- Use it as a craft night to conclude a Bible or book study
- Create it as a gift. This bookmark fits well in a card to mail in an envelope.
- Customize the bookmark design to accompany the theme of the Bible or book study

- Faux leather
- Yarn or baker’s twine
- Iron-on vinyl or heat transfer vinyl
- Cutting machine: A Cricut machine is ideal in order to create customized designs. Ask around in your Bible or book club to see if anyone has a Cricut machine to use for this craft night
- Home iron or EasyPress Mini
- Optional (if no cutting machine): hole punch
Assembly of this craft is easy:
- Use the cutting machine to cut the designs. The cutting machine will be able to cut the faux leather bookmarks, but these can also be cut by hand, if needed. If not using the cutting machine, use the hole punch to make the hole in the top of the faux leather bookmark.
- Use the iron on light heat to adhere the iron-on vinyl to the faux leather. Do NOT press forcibly on the faux leather. Just allow the heat source to rest on it. Pressure will make indentations in the bookmark.
- Cut 6″ of twine or yarn. Thread it through the hole in the top of the bookmark. Trim any excess or frayed ends.
