Pretty Bookmark made with Cricut, Cuttlebug and Bazzill paper

Black and Blue and Read all over! That’s the state of my summer reading library. I have lent out so many books, and received so many in return I cant keep track. That is~until now.

I decided I needed a way to track my books and gently remind my friends of who owns what. Every time I lend a book I make a book plate to put inside. It has my name on it with the date. When I return a book, I make a special “Thank You!” by tucking in a pretty bookmark. Everyone remembers and I even get requests to borrow books because everyone wants a bookmark!

Here’s how I made this bookmark:

  1. White Bazzill Basics paper in the Cuttlebug with the A2 Floral Fantasy Emboss Folder
  2. Black Bazzill Basics paper in the Cricut Expression Machine using the Cindy Loo Cartridge
  3. Navajo Blue Bazzill Basics paper hand cut bird
  4. All pieces glued using tacky craft glue
  5. Ribbon strung through hand cut hole and fastened with white brad.

It’s that easy!

Happy Reading!
