Make Santa Bookmarks 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.
step 2: create a longer tag by running a 2" wide strip of red cardstock through the Big Shot as indicated.
step 3: create Santa's mustache by cutting into an already-cut frame shape.
step 4: trim the mustache, as we do not want Santa to sport a handlebar.
step 5: cut off the ends - they will now be used as noses.
step 6: these are all of the pieces cut (including the little speech bubble turned mouth that I omitted to show you before now.)
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.
optional: add a pom pom to the top.
I hope you like what I created! I had so much fun using these Waffle Flower dies!
Aren't they just fun? Thanks Elena for sharing your talent with us!
