Bookmark This!

Happy Sunday!  Out of all the days of the week, Sunday is my favorite!  It's the one day of the week I never feel like I HAVE to accomplish chores!  Sometimes I do, but most of the time, it's my play day!

Last week, I spent it completing this long awaited project!  I had purchased  Bookmark Bits & Pieces and Bookmarks & More Dies from Sweet N Sassy Stamps so I could make bookmarks for my budding reader and his classmates!  It's taken me so long, he's more than a budding reader at this point, but I still think they will be appreciated!

I started by creating a box to house the 30 bookmarks I made.  {They have a HUGE class!}  Using a 8 1/2" x 9 3/4" piece of card stock and some strategic scoring, it was a piece of cake!  Score on the 8 1/2" side at 1 1/2", 3" and 6".  Rotate and score at 2 1/4", 3 3/4" 6" and 7 1/2".  You'll have to omit the corners and trim a few other panels, but once you get going, it will all make sense!

I decorated the bookmarks (and box) by water coloring images from Bookmark Bits & Pieces.  I cannot decide which image I like the most!  That little bookworm is awfully cute, though!
I also used Borders & Backgrounds, What's Up and Grunge Elements 2, all from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.  It was a great way to spend the afternoon!  I sure hope they like them as much as I do!

TTFN, Jane
