Chipboard Bookmark

Hello Blogging Friends!

I hope you are all enjoying Father's Day with the men in your life.  We celebrated Friday and Saturday night with our fathers, so I have today to play in my room and get a bit inky.

A while back I seen a tutorial on SCS for a Chipboard Bookmark by Beate.  It was beautiful, so I looked at the tutorial.  I used that as my inspiration for this bookmark.  I did not follow the tutorial real close and did some ad libbing of my own.

I used spellbinders, Floral Doily Motifs and cut out 4 cuts with kraft paper and 2 with Gina K 120# paper.  The Gina K paper is used on the front and back to sandwich the kraft paper.  After I cut them all out, I ran them thru my Xyron to adhere them to each other.  I stuck a white and a teal ribbon between the sandwiched kraft paper to create the pull no the bookmark.  The top piece of white Gina K was airbrushed with yellow copics.  I wanted a bright bookmark to go with the image I have choose.  I cut out a 3 inch circle and stamped the cute flower image, Lazy Susan Buggies by High Hopes.  I colored the image with copics and used a little bit of stickles on the bees wings.

After I colored the image, I used Distress Ink to color the background. Then I adhered the image to the top of the book mark and topped it off with a pink button tied with jute twine.

It was a very easy project with a cute result.  I think I will be making more of these soon. 

Thank you for stopping by.
Blessings until next time...
