Quick Bookmarks with Ellison Cutting Dies

Special thanks to Ellison for providing some of the products used in this post.

My kids love making little teacher gifts, and these bookmarks make such a thoughtful present. They made a whole stack of them for the librarian at their school. This practically foolproof project is easy for crafty kids. My girls are comfortable using a sewing machine, but you could omit the sewing portion of this project and it would still be perfectly cute. 


Here’s what you need:


Cut out bookmarks in various colors of cardstock. Use a zig-zag stitch to sew chipboard shapes to bookmarks. If sewing is not your thang, use a tape runner or your favorite adhesive instead. Add a loop of yarn, ribbon, or twine. 


Make lots and lots of them! These would also make funky gift tags. 

I have to keep the gnome, I think. He’s my favorite!
