If you are a student or a book reader, You will understand the importance of having a bookmark. Do you belong to those who turn their book page corner when stop reading a book? There are two types of readers, One with bookmarks & one without bookmarks. Another one type is ME who make & giveaway bookmarks a LOT. I have sent my handmade bookmarks in different countries so far. I design for myself, for my friends, fans & followers as well as my customers. Let’s have a look at my recent bookmarks I’ve designed some for giving away & for sale. I hope you will like the easy peasy way to make a paper bookmark with butterfly paper punch.
How To Make Bookmarks With Butterfly Paper Punch
Remember I decoupage a box few weeks back, There I got some pretty scrapbook paper sheets along with a butterfly paper punch. I made these bookmarks by using that pretty designed sheet & paper punch. I used some crepe paper for the other side of bookmark. Let’s see how to make bookmarks!
Craft Supplies for making Bookmarks:
Scrapbook Sheet card
Scissors or Paper cutter
Pencil & Scale
Glue & Beads
First of all I measure the paper sheet & then cut it with a sharp cutter. There were 4 strips of paper after cutting and separating them.
Make a point where you want to circle punch for putting a tassel or thread etc.
Put all three paper strips together & punch it nicely.
Then keep the sheets together & fix under the butterfly punch & press it. You can do it one by one as well. The 4th bookmark strip made a little mess with the punch & butterfly design was lost. But I am glad to have these three butterflies well.
Isn’t it cute? Let’s see what next.
I paste all three bookmarks on a purple crepe paper sheet, When this gets dry, Cut it nicely with scissors. Do not use paper cutter for crepe paper cutting.
Make the butterflies popup style & fix it back on the space where it was punch out.
Paste a small bead in the middle of butterfly wings.
And it’s ready. Looking good? Simple easy & cute way to make bookmarks. Isn’t it?
