So with school about to start and January's release being for boys I decided to create some bookmarks for my boys. I am going to share with you my quick and easy bookmark, it looks pretty simple but is especially great for kids!
You will need some cardstock, patterned paper, Whiff of Joy coloured image 'Astronaut Henry', border punch and magnetic tape.
Cut cardstock 80mm x 160mm, score along the length at 70mm and fold.
Punch border along the bottom.
Cut patterned paper, stitch edges and adhere to the front. For the inside, cut patterned paper, punch a border along the bottom and adhere.
Adhere your stamped image and finish off with stars, mini tag and sentiment.
Cut a atrip of magnetic tape, approximately 50mm long and adhere to the inside of your bookmark.
Cut another strip of magnetic tape and place on top of the strip you have just adhered.
The reason I am doing it this way, is because I find the the magnetic strips don't perfectly align so by doing it this way you can see where they 'meet'.
Then you simply close your bookmark and the top magnetic strip will adhere to the top.
These are also great to add to birthday cards for an extra little something!
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial today and remember you can create magnetic bookmarks in a variety of shapes, all you need to do is add some magnetic tape!
