I was trying to find another back to school themed craft to make. So I make bookmarks. These bookmarks are large bookmarks and what I think of when I hear bookmark. I also made small corner bookmarks. They are here.
I made these and showed them to my daughter and she laughed at me. She said “DUH mom, we don’t have books anymore. Everything is on the computer.” So I guess that these large bookmarks are for readers too. And I guess I’m just old because I had books. Either way these are cute and easy to make.
What you need:
- various scraps of cardstock
- the download files
These bookmarks used up a lot of my scrapbox. I tried to use a wide variety of papers. Anything can be used. For the inserts even vellum can be used.
For the ones with drawing I used a black gel pen or on the dark bookmark I used a white gel pen. Using a marker works but you lose some of the detail on the yellow bookmark.
BTW did you know that you can use any pen in your cricut? Find out how here.
I combined all the small pieces to one mat. Watch my video if you don’t know how to do that.
For the bookmarks with two or three layers be careful where you glue them so that the glue doesn’t come through the holes in the front and back.
