Send your kids Back to School with bookmarks made especially for them!
First... who said bookmarks have to be small???? I used my Pinkfresh slim dies to make these bookmarks, and let me tell you, the kids aren't going to lose these ones! LOL The largest one is 4.25" x 9"!
I made this first bookmark for my granddaughter who is devoted to her cat Ginger. The paper collection and ephemera pack used for this is the ever-so-cute Happy Tails.
To make the tassel, I followed this tutorial. I also followed the youtube below to tie the tassel together tightly without any ends showing.
Here are the layers of the bookmark. (Note: I changed out the heart paper for the dark hearts, as I felt they looked better.) Heart paper is 4" x 9 1/8". Orange kitten face paper is 3-5/8" x 8-5/8", as is the blue kitten paper.
The bookmark below was made for my grandson who is going into grade six. It suits him because learning is an adventure and he loves to learn! The paper pack and ephemera I used is from the Adventure collection.
I didn't think to do this on Emily's bookmark, but for Austin's, I cut a piece of acetate packaging and glued it in between the last layers. This is to hold the ribbon a little more securely and keep it from pulling out. On the first bookmark, it would help keep the tassel from tearing out of the hole.
I think my grandkids are going to love these. Hope you did as well!
