How to Create Christian Bookmarks for a Women’s Retreat

Create Custom Christian Bookmarks in Google Drawings (free) or Microsoft Word


Creating custom Christian bookmarks would be a great way to offer your readers a free printable. You could even use them as an opt-in for email sign-ups. Also, I’ve designed bookmarks for each of our retreats and dropped them in the ladies’ retreat goody bags as a freebie. They’re perfect!

Learn how to create custom christian bookmarks for yourself, to give as gifts, or to offer as free printables on your blog. These bookmarks are fun and simple to make.

If you’ve never created custom bookmarks, you’re in for a treat. Design these and use them for yourself or give them as gifts. I’ve printed bookmarks on card stock, and I’ve also printed them, cut them out, and laminated them.

I’m going to show you how to create bookmarks both in Microsoft Word and in Google Drawings. I know not everyone has Word, and the free Google Drawings makes a great alternative.

Laminate your bookmarks to make them last longer. Try punching a hole at the top of your bookmark, and tie a piece of yarn through the hole.
Use the bookmarks as an email opt-in incentive.

Create a bookmark with a theme that matches a blog promotion you’re currently working on.
