This Week: PLAID POPSICLE BOOKMARK WITH NOTES
I thought I would continue the popsicle theme from my art contest entry. Thinking ahead to summer reading, this bookmark hides a place for ideas and page flags.
Get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Printout, glue stick, index card or other card stock, decorative paper (I used origami paper, but you can omit the index card layer if your decorative paper is thick), small post it notes and page flags, 8” of cord, and scissors.
FIG. 2 Glue the printout to the paper, wrong sides together. If you are using card stock to thicken the cover, sandwich that in between the printout and the decorative paper. Cut around the popsicles and fold the cover in half.
FIG. 3 Cut the popsicle stick off the front cover.
FIG. 4 Glue the piece of popsicle stick to the inside of the back cover, securing the end of the cord between layers.
FIG. 5 Tie a square knot in the leash (you can hang this out of the bottom of the book to mark your place) and add a few notes and flags, but not the whole stack.
