Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Drink Coffee Read Books Book Mark Card

This is the first time, I'm participating in the Coffee Lover Blog Hop! Made a fun bookmark card with A Jillian Vance Design Dies for the WIN! LOL! It's quick and easy. 

The bookmark comes off to use. It's removable with Adhesive Dots Large Repositionable. Simply rub off the dot and use. I'll be back to update this post with a tutorial so stay tuned!

 **I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**


Drink Coffee Read Books Bookmark Step Outs

First, secure the white cardstock A2-sized (4.25 x 5.5-inch) card base with Adhesive Dots Large Repositionable. I used these instead of magnets as they would get in the way of stamping the entire panel. Just rub off after stamping! Stamp the Coffee Bean Background Stamp and set aside to dry. 

Next, die-cut two bookmark shapes from the Minnie Pearl Bookmark Die Set and Kraft cardstock. We're going to hinge the shapes together to clip the page as a bookmark.

Making the Hinge

For this bookmark and for shaped cards, I use this technique because it keeps the integrity of the shape. Give it a try when you make a shaped card!

Step 1. Create the hinge by scoring 0.75-inch on the long side of one of the bookmarks.
Step 2. Apply E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots adhesives in the scored area.
Step 3. Place the second bookmark shape on top of the hinged bookmark.
Step 4. Secure the scored area with the front bookmark to finish.

Finishing Touches

Stamp images from the Coffee and Books Stamp Set on the bookmark.

Add beige twine on the bookmark and card front. Designer's Note: I slit open the fold of the card to thread the twine. 

Lastly, add Adhesive Dots Large Repositionable on the back of the bookmark and tuck behind the twine.

So fun, right? What books are you reading for the summer? I need a list! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
