Cute In-Color Book Mark

Here is a cute In-Color Book Mark – perfect for marking a spot in your new catalog, or a book or anything else you may need a book mark for.  Those that attended my Catalog Kickoff event earlier this month got to make one to take home.

This year Stampin’ Up! created the book mark template for us.  I printed them off on Whisper White card stock and cut into 2″ strips.  Each one was punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

For each In-color I punched a piece of card stock with the Classic Label Punch.  Did you know that you can use that punch to create the little flag ends?  Punch the classic label and then stick it back in from the side to punch each end again into a flag.

Do that for each of the In-Colors and attach with adhesive on to the bookmark in the appropriate spot.

Then I used the Tabs for Everything stamp set – I stamped the outline images in Memento Black ink.  I used a long block to put all 4 images on at once, ink them and stamp on a strip.

Then I used the coordinating fill image to fill in with the In-Colors.  The thumbs up doesn’t have an outline so it was just stamped by itself on the strip.  Each one was punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch.  Then attach with adhesive on top of the corresponding color strip.

To finish the top I added a piece of the 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon (Fresh Fig color) that was tied with a small piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
