12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 3 – Holiday Bookmarks

day3_bookmarks1

Good morning and welcome to day three of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! I have a craft to share today.  Every year, my bookclub has a holiday party in early December. We take the month off due to holidays.  But we always have a party at a local restaurant and have dinner and a fun book swap.  So I made some bookmarks for each of the members to remind us of a year of books we explored and say thanks for the fun.

So I cut out bookmarks on my Silhouette and then used a Flourishes stamp and stamped the greeting and topiary on each. Then I colored them up with Copics and added a Wink of Stella to the ornaments to give them a glowing look (can’t see in my photos unfortunately).  I then ran them through my laminator. Which by the way, is super inexpensive at Walmart.  It’s very easy to use and I am loving it.

I hope you are having a blessed day.
