Fun Flowers Ribbon Bookmark

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I had two full days of fun family celebrations. 

On Saturday, I attended a ceremony dedicating Snider High School's baseball field to my uncle Mike!  He worked at the high school for 40 years as a teacher, track coach, football coach, and eventually athletic director, and he was instrumental in developing the baseball field that now bares his name: Michael W. Hawley Field.  I'm so very proud of him!  Congratulations, uncle Mike!

On Easter Sunday, we gathered at my in-laws for dinner and Easter-egg hunting with all the little ones!  We also celebrated my niece Allison's 7th birthday!  It was a fun, fun family day!  I hope you all were able to enjoy some family time during this holiday weekend.

Fun Flowers Ribbon Bookmark

Today's project uses the Fun Flowers Die to create a beautiful bookmark! 

Bookmark - with book   Bookmark - full   Fun flowers 121812L

I love the paper flowers you can create with the Fun Flowers Die and these were so fun and easy to make!

After die-cutting all of my pieces, I started with the smallest flowers first and worked my way down. 

  • I punched a 3/4" Circle Punch of Concord Crush, added the Pretty Ink Pink die-cut scalloped circle center, then topped it off the center with a retired Epoxy Brad. 
  • I embossed the light purple flower from the Lap of Luxury DSP with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  Adhere the flower center to this with Dimensionals. 
  • I scrunched up the Very Vanilla Lap of Luxury layer and finger-formed the petals. Adhere the smaller flower layers to the top with Dimensionals.
  • The bottom Concord Crush layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder, then adhered with more Dimensionals.
  • The entire flower is adhered to a 15" long Pretty In Pink Striped Grosgrain Ribbon with SNAIL adhesive (about 5" or 6" from the end).

Bookmark - back

  • I finished off the back with another embossed large flower die-cut adhered with SNAIL.

The next time you're giving a book as a present, wouldn't it be great to create a coordinating flower bookmark to go with it?!  What a terrific idea!  It's also a nice thank you gift all by itself!  Cute, cute, cute!
