Last week my design team sister Teri Beri inspired me with the bookmarks she was making, so I thought it would be fun to whip some up for family members (and one for me, of course)! I recently got the Papertrey Ink Notched Hearts Banner Dies, and the heart/dot cut-out pattern makes the design already made! The long and narrow shape of the dies also make them perfect for a bookmark. I just added We R Memory Keepers Eyelets, thin hemp, and felt hearts made with the My Creative Time Stitched Heart Layering Dies. The ends of the hemp are sandwiched between two hearts with some hot glue.
For a boy's bookmark, I just used the back layer of the banner die, cutting it once with cardstock and once with patterned paper. This paper is from an older October Afternoon collection, Campfire. I die cut three stars out of the patterned paper using the smallest star from the My Creative Time 3 Star Stitched Dies, and then used that same die to cut stars out of yellow, red, and orange cardstock, nestling them back into the bookmark. The larger felt stars were cut with this same die, and the smaller one was cut with the star from MCT's All Around Holidays.
This last one, for my brother-in-law, who loves to camp and backpack, uses the same Campfire patterned paper. I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Summer Camp and added a little border with the ekSuccess Zig Zag Punch.
