Student Bookmarks


The classroom projects continue! School starts next Tuesday, and I've been unable to get into my classroom because of construction issues. So instead, I'm spending a lot of time on projects that I really don't need to be doing right now. I decided to make a bookmark for each student to have on their desks the first day of school. I used my Gypsy and made these using the bookmark shape from Plantin Schoolbook with the Feeling Groovy font for the letters. I cut the letters out of patterned paper, and then I adhered the patterned paper to the same size bookmark shape in black. I hated to waste the cut-out letters, so I adhered them to black rectangles to create nametags to display on a bulletin board with student writing. I'll post a pic of the bulletin board when I can finally get it together!

Recipe:

True Black Papertrey Ink Cardstock
