I'm an avid reader of books & I don't usually stick to reading just one at a time.
I am guilty of dog ear-ing all my paperbacks :p as I am either constantly losing my bookmarks or am just too plain lazy to stick one in between the pages before I fall asleep. (for all who've loaned me your books> no, I don't [or try extremely hard]
not to do so wink*)
To avoid anymore unnecessary e(a)rring on my part, I was just thinking of how I should come up with a cute little bookmark which does not just lie in between pages but gently grips itself to pages for a better hold.
& what better design to use than my latest Easter pattern called Chick Chic. Thus, I present to you, the freebie of the week:
Chick Chic Bookmark
I designed them in many different colors to suit your moods or your book covers!
Great as mini gifts for family and friends! (fellow dog ear markers too!)
A list of items you'll need to make the bookmark:
1. Paper (of a preferably thicker stock)
4. Box cutter (blade)
Here's a pictorial tutorial I've whipped up:
Have your materials at the ready!
Select and separate the bookmark(s) you want
Using your box cutter, start cutting along the wing area from
dot to dot located on the wing area.
This creates the flap for which the bookmark
grips itself to pages.
Trim the off the excess white paper off the bird & there!
You've got your bookmark!! ^ -^;;
Chick at work!
Many chicks at work!
Here's where you can download the templates for the bookmarks:
