I had the hardest time finding cute custom bookplates to mail to readers, so I decided to make my own. I asked an Etsy stamp maker to help me design a rubber stamp with one of my favorite sayings (which is said to be an old Chinese proverb). I bought thick card stock from a paper store, stamped the paper and attached an adhesive to the back. Voila: instant bookplates.
Bonus: I’ve used the stamp for thank-you cards and to inscribe friends’ books. Isn’t it great?
