Okay, here are the bookmarks that I made for my students for their first day of school. I used my favorite animal print paper again. These were pretty easy to make on my Gypsy. For each one I took the bookmark shape from Plantin Schoolbook and sized it at 6.18" x 1.76". I added the name inside it using the Feeling Groovy font at 1.5". I cut this in the patterned paper. Then I also cut the bookmark shape without the name in white for the backing. After adhering them together I added an eyelet and some ribbon.
I also used the letters that cut out of the bookmarks to make nameplates for my writing bulletin boards. The shape that I glued the names on is from the Art Philosophy cartridge, and I stretched it in my Gypsy to fit the names. I also ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give it some texture.
Here's a look at the 2nd grade writing board. I used my Jubilee cartridge (thanks, Kim!) for the title. Sorry the picture isn't the greatest. I didn't realize it until I got home and loaded it onto my computer.
