Today I’m sharing a free printable for all my fellow bibliophiles: A set of 4 beautiful bookmarks featuring lovely watercolor flowers. (I know, I know. You’re so shocked I used flowers again, right? I just can’t help myself, friends.)
These pretty designs were inspired by the “You Are” series of notebook journals I recently added to the store. When I saw how gorgeous the finished journals turned out, I wanted to share a little something free featuring the same designs. A bookmark seemed like the perfect complement to a journal, and so I set to work creating these pretty floral designs.
What I love even more that the charming flowers, though? The encouraging messages I added to these bookmarks and journals that remind us how we look through God’s eyes. In our image-driven, social-media obsessed world, we’re often told that we don’t quite measure up. Around every corner, it seems, there’s a new message telling us we need to do more of this, try harder at that, or look better by using this and that.
But in God’s kingdom? We can throw out all those ridiculous measuring sticks. Because we already have value and purpose: God wove it right into our hearts the moment He gave us life.
So these little bookmarks offer a little “fighting punch” against all the harmful messages that can bombard our hearts. Words that remind us how God feels about us:
“You are enough.”
“You are beautiful.”
“You are loved.”
“You are brave.”
You can grab these free bookmarks by hitting the blue download button at the end of the post. Just print the design on some cardstock and grab a scissors to cut them out.
Here are just a few of the ways you can use these free printable bookmarks:
- Use one in your Bible or journal
- Tuck a bookmark in your daughter’s book as a surprise for her to find!
- Place a bookmark in a birthday card for a family member or friend.
- Visit the library and tuck a few a few of these encouraging bookmarks in the books on the New Release shelf.
- When you gift a book or journal, put one of these bookmarks inside.
- Share with Bible study, book club, or prayer group friends.
These are just a few simple ideas for sharing a little bookmark love with others: I’m sure you can come up with even more of your own! However you use them:
I hope these little bookmarks will do more than just mark pages in your books, friends. I hope they’ll also give you a gentle reminder of God’s ever-present love.
