Bookmarks

November 22, 2012

I volunteer on Thursday afternoon at my grandchildren’s school.  I join the library class for my two grandsons and check the books in and out.  It takes a while for the children to get used to me and for me to get used to them.  By the end of the year, the children all say hello when they see me and often stop to have a chat.

Its my last visit to the class today and I wanted to give them a little something for letting me become part of their school day.   I made them all a bookmark.  I used the stampset Bug Me, which is so cute and lets you make all kinds of bugs.  The girls bookmarks are made using Melon Mambo card and ink and the boys Pacific Point card and ink.  I also used a little Basic Gray ink.  I printed their names on one end using the Computer and added a little note on the back from me.

Of course I had to make one for each of the teachers and the teacher’s aid.  These are corner bookmarks and lots of fun to make.   I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits on the bottom and embossed using the Delicate Designs Folders.  I used my newest favourite stamp set Everything Eleanor to decorate.  I used Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green ink and the matching 1/2” Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I think they turned out really lovely, what about you?

Bye for now, Kris.

    The EE bookmarks look sooooo glam with the embossing and edging Kris. I too love giving kids bookmarks for their books….makes em all a wee more ‘wormlike”. They are all beautiful.
