I wanted to share a quick project with you today. As I've mentioned before, I always make a favor for our monthly ladies meeting at church. This month, my original project was not working out like I planned, so I had to make a last minute substitution, and I made bookmarks. They were really easy and fast and would be great for a party favor or to add to a card as a little something extra.
For each one, I used word art from Gypsy Wanderings. It has GREAT word art! Each word was cut at a slightly different size. I tried to keep them all around 5"-6" long and 2" wide when sized on my mat on screen. Please forgive the background that doesn't match at all. I have no idea what possessed me to use the kitchen counter instead of the plain white table for a background! I was at church and in a hurry and it must have been a blond moment.
To make these, I welded a circle onto the shadow of each word. I then placed another circle on top of it (not welded) so it would cut like a hole punch.
It took a little trial and error to figure out what size I wanted the holes to be. This could vary based on the width of your ribbon.
There are tons of artsy, swirly words that you could use from many different cartridges. This is just a sampling of what I chose.
I hope you all have a fabulous day!
