I don’t know about you, but the darker nights are perfect for curling up with a good book and these free printable autumn bookmarks to colour (or fall bookmarks to colour if you are from across the pond) are just perfect. They would make the perfect addition to any book you might gift too.
I commissioned Alex @Doodle.drew to design these fall/autumn bookmarks for you to colour and they are totally adorable and perfect for kids and adults alike. I love to “fall in love with a good book”!
Free Printable Autumn Bookmarks to Colour
Not only are they a fun free printable to colour, they are great for promoting reading. Why not give a bookmark and book to colour in. Simply mat the uncoloured bookmark onto cardstock and add a ribbon and then give it out for the recipient to colour.

You can never have enough bookmarks, or I certainly can’t. You will find them in my reading books, cookbooks, dairy and any books I am using for study too.
I always have a colouring bookmark in my office as I can have a little colour in when I am thinking, on the phone or procrastinating!
These bookmarks are perfect, no matter what your skill level is. We would love to see your versions of the Love Books colouring bookmarks, so please do share them with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

I am often asked what products I use and I am a big advocate of using the best supplies you can afford. It is really frustrating to use pencils that keep snapping or refuse to blend well, oh and don’t get me started on pens that bleed through the paper. I always buy the best quality I can afford, not just for me but for my kids too. I want colouring to be a joyful experience.
I always print my printables directly onto 160 gsm cardstock using my Epson Ecotank Printer rather than regular paper, this way they are a little more durable and the pens do not bleed through to the other side. However, if you do not have a home printer then just pop to a library and use theirs.
These are mine and the MiniMad’s suggestions to you. Our tried and tested favourites. When I first started colouring I just pinched the boy’s products, which is why adult colouring is so accessible and over the period of a year I now have my own supplies!
