As a former English teacher, I love reading and I LOVE bookmarks! And don’t get me wrong, I love adult coloring books too, but I don’t always know what to do with the coloring pages once they are colored. You can only frame and hang so many. So when I found these fantastic free printable coloring bookmarks, I was hooked!
I love functional art. So using free printable bookmarks to color PDFs are the perfect blend of function and art. If you print these bookmarks on heavy card stock, they will be sturdy and make great gifts. When you’re done coloring, just laminate, punch a hole, tie a tassel and voila! You’ve got a handmade gift.
Adult coloring is one of my favorite coping skills when my mind is racing with worry. Coloring soothes my anxiety and is a secret weapon I keep in my self-care toolkit. It’s easy, free, and requires little thought (except to pick beautiful colors!)
Any bookmark link with a “🦋” in front of it means it is one that I created for you (for free of course.)
Enjoy these free printable coloring bookmarks!

Note: When printing, do not choose “fit to page.” Instead, choose “actual size.”
Definitely make sure you use heavy weight cardstock for these free printable coloring bookmarks. Some people prefer to print out their free adult coloring page printables at home. I like to save my printer ink and print mine at my local Office Depot.
