Freebies: Summer Fruit Punch Bookmarks

For this week's freebie, I've persuaded these adorable fruits to be part of Jinjerup's freebie Bookmark collection! Previously we shared the Chickchic Bookmarks and now we have the Summer Fruit Punch Bookmarks! (& Of course, these new bookmarks are based on my Fruits of the sun patterns 1, 2!)

Featuring durian, lychee, mangosteen, papaya, pineapple and watermelon, a tastefully cute collection for your summer reading pleasure!







All featured summers fruits together!
Pick your fave summer fruit bookmark & its off we go!!

A list of items you'll need to make the bookmark:
1. Paper (of a preferably thicker stock)
2. Printer
3. Scissors
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 grip area from
dot to dot. (eye to eye)

This creates the flap for which the bookmark
grips itself to pages.

Trim the off the excess white paper off the fruit & you've got your bookmark!!

All completed Summer Fruit Punch bookmarks!

Pineapple, durian and papaya bookmarking one of my fave books of all time!

Such fruitful bookmarks! :P

Zoomed in view of pineapple working on his fave chapter.


Here's where you can download the templates for the bookmarks:

Measurements: Sizes of bookmarks vary between 5cm x 5cm, 5cm x 6cm and 5cm x 7cm Please click on the colored links below for the downloadable templates!

This is cool, it's a great idea which you can use this as a bookmark. I read books and I will try to make this one and use this as a bookmark. Great post.
