Ok. If you are a reader or planner, then you will LOVE this post!! I saw this quick little video one day on Facebook on how to make these mind blowing bookmarks, and I just had to make some for myself! They are so easy! I was like, why haven’t I thought of this before?!?!?! ACK!!!
Ok wanna make some?! Here’s what you need to get out! Then you can follow along!
- patterned paper
- plain white envelopes
- We R Memory Keepers Envelope Maker Board (if you have one)
- ephemera, paper clips, binder clips, etc.
- Choose which papers you want to use. Using your envelope board, create a 6×6 envelope.
2. Adhere ALL flaps down, like dis;
3. Cut the corners to whichever size you want, I did 2 large, 2 small.
**NOTE** If you do NOT have an envelope board, it’s totally fine! Just take any old envelope you have in your stash, cut the corners off, then cover them with papers, washi tape, whatever! It’s all good!
(See the yellow poking through? That’s where the corner of your page will slide in)
4. Get all of your goodies out and start to embellish! I just used paper clips because I think the fun part is going to be changing out the pretty ephemera!
(I apologize for always using this pink rose and mint green piece, I just love them.)
What does a black swan have to do with coffee? Umm nothing but when you’re reading anything can happen, so anything goes! No rules here! This guy is a beast.
Pretty soon you have some real cuties!
Ready to have your mind blown?! You just slide them onto your page at the top, like a giant photo corner!! Boom. A beee-you-tiful extra special handmade bookmark. Think how pretty your books will be now yay!
I’m putting this one in my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner woot woot!
This one’s for you mom, ya big quilting animal!
These things are so fun and addictive, pretty soon you will end up with a pile of cuteness and you’ll be mailing them to all of your book worm peeps! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a book mark swap?!
They would be so much fun to make with a kid! The smaller corners would be great in their little books! Maybe your kiddies can make some and donate them to the library? There’s a lot of summer programs out there for schools, I’m sure little book worms would love to have a fancy hand-made bookmark!
If you make some I want to see! Tag us up on IG with #sugarmaplepapercoprettiestbookmarksever! Just kidding lol but I do hope you make some with your Cream & Sugar Kit!
If you’re completely drooling over these gorgeous roses and you can’t even handle it, grab yours here!
Have a happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!
