I wanted to play over at the Kraftin Kimmie challenge for their back to school. And I didn't want to make another card that would not be used! So I figured I would do a bookmark. I've been meaning to try out making the corner ones and when I saw the DT inspiration that really got me thinking that this would be fun! I could give it to one of my son's for his book (he really has a lot to read for school right now) and maybe get him inspired to read, ?!? Or maybe not... but it won't be because he doesn't have a bookmark (BTW is it just me or do your kids lose those like crazy?!? Mine just keep losing them and I have no clue as to how they go about doing that...)
Anyway I digress, I looked over in google to find a tutorial (mind you I'm pretty sure there must be a form in my Cameo that would do this... but I figured I would make it by hand with some scraps of paper) and I found one. You can see it for yourself here. It's super easy so that I really love! And I kept the shape for future use. And this way I can make new ones when they lose them... or when I have a challenge requiring to make something other than a card!
I used a little pirate that I had purchased at a clearance sale from Kraftin Kimmie... so don't have the proper name for him but I really think he's totally adorable!!!
So as I mentioned I used all scraps of papers to make this!!! YAY. I used my large oval from Spellbinder. I also used my label maker to make the sentiment.
Here's a look when it's in a book:
I'm really loving how this turned out!!!
