I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with some more bookmarks! The lockdowns have really depleted my niece’s reading supplies, so I thought I would colour up the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Birthday Tag Topper dies and create some bookmarks.
I started out by die cutting the characters from some blending cardstock. I then used my Copic markers to add some colour to them, making sure to colour around the edge of the die cuts so that there were no white edges on show.
I then chose some coordinating cardstocks from Lawn Fawn – Mermaid, Raspberry and No 2 Pencil – to cut some of the main strips for the bookmarks. I also cut another set of the characters so that I could hide the back of the colouring and reinforce the die cuts.
I stencilled on some details onto the otherwise plain cardstock with the Newton’s Nook Serene Stripes Stencil and some Distress Inks.
Stick them altogether and you get a set of quick and easy bookmarks! I will be laminating them to give them a bit more longevity, though they’re easier to photograph before! I can already tell that the pink unicorn will be my niece’s favourite!
