Bookmark Card























I've wanted to have a go at making a bookmark card for a long time and eventually I got round to it. There are several ways of making these but I have made one which is using a perforated strip down the side of the card which can be detached to use as your bookmark. I took an A4 sheet of More Mustard and cut it down to 14.8cm x 26cm and then, turning it to landscape, I scored at 10.5cm and perforated at 21cm, which leaves a 5cm strip for the bookmark part. I have a perforating blade on my paper cutter but you can buy hand held rotary ones as well. I cut 1cm off the top of the bookmark part purely so that the knot of ribbon was inside the card and not sticking out of the top. To decorate I used a mat of Soft Suede cardstock topped with a piece of Paisley Petals DSP for the front and just a strip of DSP for the bookmark. On the front I added a knot of Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon with the sentiment, punched out with the Modern Label punch, placed on top. To strengthen the hole in the top of the bookmark I punched a ¼“ hole in More Mustard cardstock and then cut out with ½" circle punch and glued one of these on the front over the hole which I had already punched in the bookmark and one at the back. A piece of ribbon was threaded through the hole. The card was finished off with a Very Vanilla Top Note stuck on the inside to write a message.
