For this stamp release I wanted to try something other than cards. I got the idea to make bookmarks because of how much reading my friend does in their spare time. These bookmarks were so fun and simple to make, I plan on making several more! The stamp set I used was ‘Size Doesn’t Matter’ and I am very excited to show off the new set and what I made today!
For my first bookmarks I decided to keep the background simple and white (maybe next time I will get more adventurous with the background). This lets the characters and sentiments pop more. To make the bookmark I took a normal 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of 80 lb Neenah paper and cut it into 5 81/2″ x 2″ bookmarks.
I picked out a character then found a sentiment that I liked related to each character. After coloring in the characters I decided to laminate the bookmark then cut it out. This will help it last over the years of being used in books and tossed in a bag.
