Hi, Evelin here 🙂 Do you love books? I do! I love curling up on a couch with a book in hand and just read. I missed doing that because I recently transitioned to using a kindle due to space constraint (I will start buying books again when we move to a bigger space.. HAHA) and also convenience. Reading in bed in the middle of the night with a sleeping toddler nearby, the kindle is really a life saver 🙂
Anyway, I wanted to share with you how I used sweet stamps to make bookmarks. As I’ve mentioned before, sweet stamps are really versatile and that’s one of the many reasons I love them.
My usual process : Stamp a whole bunch of each image that I want and then watercolor them. I find this method is the most time efficient if I am working on multiples of the same design.
Then I fussy cut all the images (well, it only took me a couple of hours… granted I did fussy cut a whole lot of them.. hehe). I already pre-cut all the bookmarks with patterned paper to 2×6 inches.
Then it’s just mixing and matching the images that I fussy-cut to the patterned paper and stick them down. I then run the bookmarks through a laminator (I like that my bookmarks last) and then it’s time to punch holes in them and match pretty tassels to them. I got my laminator and tassels on Amazon.
It is a little hard to photograph them after the bookmarks are laminated because of the plastic but I really like how sturdy they became 🙂
And these are the sets that I used:
I hope that this will inspire you to use sweet stamps in other ways as well 🙂
Till next time!
