Weekly Blog Project - 'Sunny Days' Bookmark

Good afternoon, welcome to another weekly blog project. This week, it is my turn (Heidi) to design a project. I have made a very quick and easy little bookmark which fits very snuggly onto a corner of a book, as shown above.
I have used a wonderful flower image from a little set called 'Sunny Days' (£7.50).  It comes complete with a larger flower image, a sentiment and a very cute little hedgehog mowing lol!


Here is a list of products used on the project :-
Pink & Black Bazzill cardstock
White Stamping cardstock
Martha Stewart 'Hydranda' and border punch
White/Black Dot ribbon
Black sparkly stones
Black Momento Inkpad
Double-sided tape
Black pen

Promarkers :

Ice Grey I
Rose Pink
Bright Green

Instructions :
(1) Firstly, stamp image onto white cardstock using black Momento inkpad, colour in with listed Promarkers.  Doodle around the image at the edge of the square using a black pen.
(2) Cut a black square measuring 4 x 4 inches.  Score slightly at 2 inches at the top on one side and again on another.  Score between points and fold down both edges. Punch bottom using border punch.
(3) Cut two pink squares measuring, 2.34 x 2.34 inches, cut one in half. Cut another square in black measuring 2.38 x 2.38 inches.
(4) Stick down pink triangle to back of bookmark.  Glue some ribbon to back of pink square and stick down. Layer black square and white stamped image together, tie bow and add black stones.


Hope you have enjoyed this little project.  Please leave a comment to let us know what you think.

  1. Nice bookmark. Made one of these at a make & take at local stamp store. I'll have to ck out the Hedgehog since my daughter likes Hedgehogs.
