Default Bookmarks - do you make them and/or do you have a favorite?

This thread has sprung from the thread Stampin' Stacy started called Summer Reading.

A dear friend of mine has been loaning me books to read. I've thoroughly enjoyed the books and have decided to make her a dozen bookmarks as a thank you. Perhaps you share my dislike of using receipts, toilet paper or whatever is nearby as a place marker in a current read.

I hope you will share bookmarks you've made or a favorite that you use.

One of my favorite types of bookmarks is the corner one as they don't bend the pages and envelopes are recycled. Here's one that I found:

We had a bookmark swap here last September and the theme was a favorite book. Here's the one I made:

I used to cut the corners off of pretty envelopes for bookmarks when I was in college. Stamping them is a good idea.

I have a collection of bookmarks I keep in a cubby in my desk. Some of my favorites are an origami penguin, a white leather one I got as a souvenir on my first trip to England, and another folded one with magnets on both sides to clip over the page. When I get a chance, I'll scan them so you can see them.

I like the long straight ones that show out of both ends of a paperback.
I have tons, because my best friend used to send me lots.
But paper clips are the only ones the grandsons don't remove and lose my place, and I mean just plain old paper clips.

Elastic loops make good bookmarks, too.

I like the elastic loop idea. I've also found ideas for braiding and several style of origami. This one I found rather interesting:

I have a bunch of bookmarks from all various sources. Some I've made or recieved from other stampers. Often I would pick up a freebie at the library as I was checking out but my fav is one I make while in high school. I made it out of blue jean fabric scraps and embrodered an owl on it. Reality though is I mostly grab one of those slips of thin cs advertisments from a magazine that fall out when you pick up the mag. I always seen to have a mag around that I can shake to get one when needed, lol.

That is one of the things I like about digital reading, touch the corner and it is bookmarked and I can have as many bookmarks as I want. Handy when reading a mystery.

I suppose one of those advertisements could be folded into either a corner bookmark or folded somehow if you were to feel the need for something more unique.

I rather like using old recipts as they are thin and stay in place if you put them in right at the spine. I also think that many of the DPs we buy could be cut into nice pieces to use. Some of my favorites are bark paintings I picked up long ago in Mexico.
