It is still Father's Day here, with one more hour to go. I meant to post this earlier but got a little
sidetracked with the two eldest boys playing in separate soccer tournaments. So, this post will be a feast for the eyes, mainly photos only and a few comments :-)
I first came across the idea of corner bookmarks back in 2011 when I first joined up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Isn't that a neat idea? I love novel things that are also very practical like that.
Recently while I was in the process of thinking about a project for my September Mum & Me class, I came across Australian demo Kylie Bertucci's cute Australian animal bookmarks. I knew immediately I have to figure out how to replicate these for my class. And here are my complete CASE of two of Kylie's creations, using my own method as I didn't get a tutorial from Kylie (sorry Kylie! I am grateful for the pics you shared on your blog though).
Here is Mr Crocodile which my 8 year old thought more like a dragon :-)
The card was made very simply, very no frills, because the focus is on the bookmark!
Mr Shark has smaller eyes than Kylie's , but that's intentional as I think sharks have very tiny eyes!
And instead of a Father's Day card, if the kids wanted, they can just change the sentiment and turn it into a birthday card.
The cards ended up not fitting a standard envelope but never fear - I got the Envelope Punch Board! It is such a nifty little tool for making custom envelopes.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you will google instructions on how to make a corner bookmark and have a go at making it! If you want to know how I did mine, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Really, you can't have too many bookmarks if you read a lot!
Blessings and Happy Stampin'!
