I’ve seen several styles of these online and finally had to make one for myself. I’m an avid book reader and am always in need of a bookmark. I love this style because it’s easy to tuck the corner of your page into the “pocket” of your bookmark. These make fun gifts too. Stay tuned tomorrow as I’ll be posting bookmarks that Mia made for her classmates.
Stamps: all year cheer; Inks: soft suede; Cardstock: real red, soft suede, christmas cocoa specialty DSP; Embellishments: white gel pen; Tools: scallop edge punch, small oval punch
1) Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 5x5 inches. Now score at 2.5 inches on each side. You’ll end up with a piece of cardstock divided into 4 equal squares.
2) Cut the corner off of one square at a diagonal. This will be the front of the bookmark. If desired, you can scallop this diagonal piece with our scallop edge punch or our eyelet border punch.
3) Cut away the entire square opposite the diagonal piece. Now fold the cardstock along the 2 remaining score lines, tucking one square behind the diagonal piece, applying adhesive to its back side, and folding the remaining square to the very back. Now you have your bookmark to decorate as desired.
