Make Santa Bookmarks with Elena Roussakis

Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena-Roussakis I made a trio of santa bookmarks, one for each of my children. I thought it would be a fun gift, especially if I paired it with a book for each of them at Christmastime.  I'm including a photo tutorial to help you see that you can make these too! step 1: you will need the following dies for this project. Surface – Tag Die – Starter Kit Surface – Tag Die – Santa Add-on-01 310013 Holiday Label 1 Die step 2: create a longer tag by running a 2" wide strip of red cardstock through the Big Shot as indicated. Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 2 step 3: create Santa's mustache by cutting into an already-cut frame shape. Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 3 step 4: trim the mustache, as we do not want Santa to sport a handlebar. Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 4 step 5: cut off the ends - they will now be used as noses. Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 5 step 6: these are all of the pieces cut (including the little speech bubble turned mouth that I omitted to show you before now.) Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 6 step 7: add color: I used an E02 copic for the nose, and adhered it together with the mustache and mouth. then, I used E00 and R20 copic markers to add color to the face and blushy cheeks. once you have done this, adhere everything together. Day-4-of-12-Days-of-Gift-Giving-with-Elena 7 optional: add a pom pom to the top.
