Freebie of the week: Shirt bookmarks

Hello, hello!! Jinjerup has some speedy shirt bookmarks just in case you guys need some quick Father's Day printables! ;) Here are some cute super easy shirt bookmarks, 6 cute little shirts, designed as working shirts, argyle vest-y and sporty types to suit your dads' fashion!

Apart, from the blue, green and purple shirts, I've also created red, yellow and orange shirts, not photographed below as my printer has decided to print out all my yellows as muddy browns. Bad Printer!! Looks like I shall have to be going printer hunting soon :) You can still check out how the yellow/red/orange shirt bookmarks look like, scroll to my second image, have digitally created the image there :)

All the cute little shirts together!
Pick your fave & let's begin!

I've also included some shirt bookmark templates for your little ones to color or design in dads' fave colors and patterns. Or they could even draw and color in his favourite football worldcup teams' shirt designs? :D

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, snip along the inner sleeve outlines of shirt. This creates the flap for which the bookmark grips itself to pages.

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

Here's the grip area

Color in dad's fave colors to make these bookmarks special & personalized.
You could also write in your Happy father's day message too!

Add in a Happy Father's Day message at back of bookmark

Shirt bookmarking a page, style 1

Shirt bookmarking a page, style 2

Fashionably marking them books ;)
