Encouraging Bookmark



Hi everybody! Today I made a bookmark tag for a school child. The idea behind this is that everytime they open their book they will get these words of encouragement. I just recently got Simply Charmed and couldn't wait to cut some of these images out. This cart has some of the cutest things on it. I designed this bookmark in DS so the images sizes are approximate. The tag I cut at 5 inches from TBBM. The piece of paper was cut at 4 inches and I chalked over the lines to make them show up more( didn't it turn out cute) The scissors I cut at 2.5 inches and put Glossy Accents on the handle to make them shine. The glue was cut at 2 inches and the pencil at 3.5 inches. I used the hide contour feature for all the faces except for the pencil. I also added an eyelet to the tag's hole to make it a little stronger and then put ribbon through it and a button on the glue bottle. The sentiment is stamped from My Favorite Things Essential Sentiments.
I am entering this into 3 challenges:
1. Crafting With Cristina- School themed
2. Fantabulous Cricut's Crawl-Button Up For School
3. Paper Cutz- Tags
