Bookmarks- Blue Fern Studios

Here is another one of my projects for the Blue Fern Studios Blog.

I thought of a great idea on how to use some of the new Blue Fern Studio dangles to create bookmarks. I just thought they were the perfect size to fit inside a book and still have the bottom dangle through the pages.

I believe this would be a perfect gift for a friend's birthday or a teacher's end of the year gift.

I created a step by step  tutorial on how I made these bookmarks

Step 1: Prime both dangles with Gesso on both sides. Let each side dry before applying it on the other side.

Step 2: Cover the chipboard with crackle paint. I only covered the top side. Let it dry overnight.

Step 3: Cover one of the dangles in brown and yellow chalk ink and the other with green and yellow ink. Do this on both sides. (of course you may choose any colours you like)

Step 4: Seal both sides of the chipboard using Glossy Accents, Diamond glaze or equivalent transparent gel. Let one side dry first before applying it on the other side.

Step 5: Punch a hole through the chipboard at the top of a dangle if it doesn't have one. Then insert a tassel and a fancy brad for decoration.

Isn't this a fun idea!!
You have to get yourself some dangles!!

Have a wonderful day!!
