In keeping with the theme of reading more books for the rest of the year, I decided to make these bookmarks for the monthly how-to I do for the Ranger Ink group on yahoo. After all you can never have to many bookmarks.
To make these you will need cardstock, inks, markers (I used Ranger's Distress and Archival Inks as well as my newly acquired Le Plume Markers), lace and/or ribbon and stamps.
Cut bookmarks from card stock. Press distress ink pad onto a craft mat. Spritz with water in mini mister. Swirl bookmark in ink until fully covered. Repeat with all colors of distress ink and remaining bookmarks. Let dry completely. To speed up drying and flatten iron with a craft iron or dry with heat gun.
Using archival ink stamp quotes onto another piece of card stock. Ink flower images with markers and stamp onto cardstock. Cut stamped quotes and flowers out. Edge and lightly ink with distress inks to match the color of the bookmark they will be used on.
Cut lace/ribbon. Use distress inks to color one piece of lace/ribbon to match the color of the bookmark. Use markers to color another piece of the lace/ribbon to match the flower for the bookmark.
Punch hole in top of bookmarks and attach an eyelet. Attach the quote, flower image and the marker colored lace/ribbon to the bookmarks. Add the distress ink colored lace/ribbon through the eyelet.
