Hi there, this week Jennie is challenging us to create a project with a”Book” Theme.
For my project, I chose to make some Fall themed bookmarks.
I used one of my favorite Fall themed stamp sets from Reverse Confetti called Forever Fall. I love to color my stamps with Tombow’s Dual Brush pens and wanted to give it a try with this set. I wasn’t sure how well it would work because the stamps are clear and sometimes that can be a bit tricky. I loved how these turned out. I colored the images with the markers and then gave them a light spritz with water and stamped them onto some cream cardstock. I wanted to keep these very simple as I am going to make quite a few and donate them to our local library to give to the kids when they check out books.
A little tip I gave a few days ago and want to repeat because I used it again today.
Use some Tombow Mono Aqua on your twine to stiffen it up a bit as this allows it to be much easier to tie in a bow. The bow will really hold it’s shape this way. To do this, I just squirt some Mono Aqua out onto a scrap of cardstock and run the twine through it, I use my fingers to lay the twine out nice and straight on my non stick craft mat and let it dry for a few minutes before I tie a bow or add to a project.
Now, how would you like to win this awesome prize pack?
Be sure to head on over to Jennie’s post…you can find it HERE to see all of the details and link to your amazing “Book” themed projects!
How nice the first theme of bookmarks melissa cash.. Thanks for share.
I Love this technique! I use it all the time! It turned out great!
TFS! Take Care!
This is such a great idea for kids (or a gift for someone with kids)! Letters, nuemrbs and colors would be great for babes and you could even do simple and advanced shapes for geometry! The opportunities really are endless sweet! Thanks for this tutorial (and for being one heck of a mom from my vantage point)!
