Sylvia here to show you how to make a super quick and easy bookmark.
And I’m so excited to have something new for you: a video tutorial!
We hope the video will make things a lot easier for you and hope you enjoy it!
Please let u
s know what you think about it. 🙂
6” x 6” patterned paper from Confectionerie Scrap Pack by Quirky Twerp
Scor-Pal or bonefolder
Vintage Photo Distress inks by Ranger
Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool by Ranger or sponge
Melt Art Non-Stick Craft Sheet by Ranger or other ‘slick’ surface
Inkssentials white gel pen by Ranger
Paper piecing tool
And for those of you who can’t or would rather not watch the video, here’s a traditional photo tutorial, too
1. Score your 6 x 6” patterned paper at 3” rotate it 90° and score again at 3”
2. Score diagonally
3. Fold along the diagonal scored line to create a triangle (see picture)
4. Flip it over and fold the lower triangle up (see picture)
5. Fold the left and right edges down and tuck them under the upfolded triangle (see picture)
Your bookmark is done and you couls stop here. But you can also go further on and dress it up a little bit more like I did here:
6. Ink the lower triangle and the edges with Distress ink and the blending tool (or a cosmetic sponge or whatever you have on hand)
7. Create a line of holes with your paper piecing tool around the edges to create the faux stitching
8. Draw lines with a white gel pen to create the faux thread
9. You could further dress it up by adding some little self-adhesive gemstones or some paper flowers or whatever you like
And this is what it looks like when in use:
