Create a Stylish Bookmark with 35mm Film


If you have some 35 mm snippets left which you doesnt need any more, dont throw it away. I will show an easy and fast way to create a bookmark

You will need:

  • 35 mm snippet
  • cutting knife
  • glue
  • set square
  • some images/photos
  • pencil
  • scissors

1. The First step is to sketch the frames for the images /photos with a pencil. You can chose any size, format. (rectangle,sqaure, triangle etc..)

2.After that you take your cutting knife and slowly cut out the frames. Be careful, dont cut the sprockets, happend to me at my first try.

3. Now you have to choose some images/photos. I used some graphics of a magazine. Resize, and glue them to the snippet. Then use the cutting knife to crop off the overlaying parts.

4. Admire your work!

    This is brilliant. You could probably even go as far as printing out your lomographs and using them for the images as well. Love it!

    How fun! I'd probably laminate it and trim it to a bookmark size and round the corners. Using prints of your lomographs as someone else suggested would be a neat way to mix your own images with other found graphic elements to tell a better story with your bookmark.
