Back To School Bookmarks

I remember being so excited for the first day of school.  Butterflies in my stomach and all!  I like to send "happy mail" to all my great little nieces and nephews on special occasions and going back to school is one of them, so I made them these sturdy bookmarks to help celebrate the occasion.

Here's a snapshot of the products I used for today's project:

I cut four strips of Cougar White Heavy 160lb. Cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 2" and punched holes in the center of the top of each one.  This 160lb cardstock is wonderful for this type of project and because it's thick and sturdy, it will stand up to lots of handling from little hands.  

I then cut 4 hearts using Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Hearts out of Red Basis Cardstock.

I used an alphabet stamp set to create a sentiment on the top half of the bookmarks, leaving space for the die cut heart.
I stamped colorful layers of books using a rainbow of color on to the bottom half of each bookmark.  

Once all the stamping was done, I adhered the stitched hearts to the bookmarks using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue and added fun colored ribbons through the punched holes.

This was such a fun and easy project to set the first days of school off to a good start!

There's a sale going on for the whole month of August on all White and Cream colored cardstocks so be sure to check out Cut Cardstock for a whole list of great deals!

Thanks so much for checking out today's project.
