TLC392 ~ Fold Over Bookmark ~ (8/27/12)
Hello everyone...it's my turn to host this week's Technique Lover's Challenge !!! Since school will be starting soon the kids will be reading a lot of books and I bet you can guess what they are going to need...yup...bookmarks!!! Soooo.... my challenge to you is to make a fold over bookmark!!
I love this design because the bookmark fits over the page so it's less likely to fall out and it's a great way to use up all those long, skinny pieces of cardstock!!!.
Here are the deets:
1. Cut a piece of card stock 2" x 11" and fold in half so it measures 2" x 5 1/2" (or use a scrap of card stock near the same size).
2. Cut the top corners in the shape of a tag ( or use a die for a fancy shape) and punch a hole in the center top for ribbons or twine.
3. Sew through the front and back about 1/2" from the top so the bookmark will stay closed and not flop open. If you don't sew, you can glue the front and back together on the inside from the fold down about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.
4. Now, decorate anyway you want...remember to keep it flat so the bookmark will fit over the page snuggly!!!
