Do you have summer reading programs in your area? I used to love going to the library and picking out 8-10 books as a kid, then checking them off on my checklist to win prizes. If you are a summer book lover, maybe it’s time to “treat” yourself to your own prize. I’ve got just the project for you using the flavorful Pop Tone papers – DIY bookmarks!
These bookmarks come together quite easily and the color schemes you can come up with using CutCardStock papers are infinite! For my projects, I’m using the following Pop Tone papers: Grapesicle, Gum Drop Green, Banana Split, Limeade, Blue Raspberry and Orange Fizz. Don’t you just love the names of these papers??
See how this project comes together:
For the card stock base, I chose the Basis White 80 lb. paper because it’s nice and sturdy and will hold up for all the reading you plan to do! As mentioned in the video, I did also use the Pop Tone Sweet Tooth White for the name font, so that the project didn’t become too thick.
For the bookmark tassels, I’m using some leftover embroidery floss. These are nice and thin choices so it lays down well inside the book.
These bookmarks are going to be gifts for my favorite “bibliophiles!” Ha! I think I’m going to go back and make myself one too, so it will encourage me to get some of the books finished that are on my end table.
Let me also mention that the papers cut really nicely on my Cricut machine. I know that can be a consideration for some of you. And the ability to personalize your bookmarks means you are ready with a thoughtful gift for just about anyone.
So…now I just need to know – which color combo are YOU going to choose? All of the Pop Tone papers blend together so nicely. I’d like to hear below what you might decide to make!
