Welcome To Funky Cards
Welcome to the School Days Cooking With Cricut challenge. It is so hard to believe that summer has come to an end and I am back in school! I am guessing for most of you that your kids are back in school and you just might even be celebrating!! I do read the blogs you know:) That's ok! I know we can be a handful at times.
I have been making bookmarks since elementary school. I'm a big fan of homemade bookmarks! Most of you have probably already seen corner bookmarks, but if you haven't I wanted to share these with you today. Many other crafters have made these. I am going to share a tutorial with you later in the blog post so that you can make them too:)
These adorable kids were cut using the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge. One option is to cut them on blackout, as seen here, and use a stamp set, such as the PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment Stamp Set from Peachy Keen Stamps to create the adorable faces.
I baby sit for a sister and brother with the initials K. W. and
J. W. These personalized bookmarks will be perfect for their schoolbooks. When I design corner bookmarks I don't use googly eyes or gems or things that will easily pop off. When using stamps for eyes, I do use a white gel pen for the whites of the eyes to make them stand out just a bit. The cheeks are given a bit of red ink to make them look rosy:) It is applied with the tip of a Q-tip.
You can see how the page of the book fits between the opening of the bookmark. Since the bookmark will be handled a lot, you could even put Mod Podge on it if you want:)

Here is how I stamp and finish off the back of my bookmarks. The solid color is a perfect square. The stamp is applied and then the patterned triangles are added covering the solid paper.
