Bookmarks

I created some bookmarks back in May for an end-of-school-year gift. I like how they turned out, so I’m posting here (finally).

First up is a pretty simple bookmark. I cut Aqua Mist cardstock to fit in the bookmark sleeve. Then I cut a piece of Bitty Dot paper in Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Chocolate, and Melon. I stitched the pattern paper bits to the cardstock. I added the sentiment and scallop circle die and finished it up with some twill ribbon.

Next up is a paperclip bookmark. I love making these because I love using mine. To create this one I die cut the flowers from chipboard and felt (2 pieces each – one for the front, the other for the back). The leaves were die cut from the Sending You die set (just the big leaf). I added the leaf details by stitching with thread.

I used Melon & Terracotta for the flowers and Chartreuse for the leaves.

The final bookmark is by far my favorite one. I love this flower set and coloring it was so fun. This bookmark is much larger than the first one. (I got my sleeves from Clear Bags: small &large.)

Colors for this: Aqua Mist cardstock and the Melon Berry Copic trio. I don’t remember which greens I used – sorry.

When I was done coloring, I went back and added glitter to the shadow bits. And you can see better that I also outlined the image with a light blue Copic.

Thanks for taking a peek!
