Hello Friends! It’s Leanne here today, sharing this simple idea to gift any journaling, planner girl or avid reader in your life a little bookmark love!
Each of these bookmarks have been created using the gorgeous Heart of Home collection. They measure 9″x2.75″ and take next to no time to create. Keeping it simple is sometimes the best creative outlet I can use to put into my projects.
The Heart of Home collection offers the perfect base for bringing these bookmarks together. Especially the From Me To You patterned paper.
The Heart of Home bookmarks can be assembled in three easy steps after gathering your supplies.
Trim the cardstock to 9″x2.75″. Trim a piece of patterned paper to 8.75″x2.5″. Center the two pieces and staple at the top.
Add your embellishments. Use the diecut ephemera paper pieces to embellish the top of the bookmark. Be aware to keep the adhesive between the embellishment and the top piece of patterned paper. You need to be able to keep the cardstock separate from the top layers.
Further embellish your bookmarks by fussy cutting images from the Gatherings patterned paper.
Once your bookmark is complete, slip the cardstock behind the page in a journal, planner or current best seller, and the embellished topper stapled to it, in front.
Keep in mind that these bookmarks can be adjusted in length and width quite easily and I have kept the embellishments flat, allowing the pages of the book to close smoothly. Thanks for visiting.
