Quick and Easy Bookmarks

Do you have a reader in your life? If you do, then they are probably like me and can never have enough bookmarks! With two sheets of 8.5" x 11" card stock you can make your favorite reader SIX bookmarks to keep them going :-). These are so quick to make, an added plus when you might be strapped for time. For these bookmarks I used two stamps sets- the new Sweetheart set which was added to the Occasions Mini and I used the sentiment in Razzle Dazzle. The heart in the center is punched with the Full Heart punch from Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. Such pretty paper!

I made several, so photographed three of them for you to see. I also heat laminated my bookmarks when I was done for added durability, but they are great without being laminated too :-).

To make six bookmarks you will need:
1 8.5"x11" sheet of Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock
1 8.5"x11" sheet of background color card stock of your choice

Cut the Very Vanilla into six 2.5" x 5" rectangles. Cut the background sheet of card stock into six 2.75" x 5.25" rectangles. Stamp your images, laminate if you choose to laminate, punch two holes in the top to thread your ribbon through and you're done. And you have a cute little gift that you can put inside a card, add to a package, or just give as is. Have a wonderful day today!!

I love these, now I need to go dust off my laminator.

Thanks for sharing,
