It's always fun to have a little handmade gift to go along with a store bought gift. Today I'm going to show you how to make a bookmark you could give along with a book to your favorite reader.

I cut the front of my bookmark using white cardstock and Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 8PK - Planner Bookmark with my Big Shot. I used the recommended Sizzix die cutting sandwich for Thinlits and Framelits dies: Sizzix Magnetic Platform (or the Precision Base Plate for Thinlits Dies), Sizzix Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Sizzix Cutting Pads. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot Machine. Don't forget your Sizzix Die Brush for getting all those little paper bits from your dies.
Here it is cut. Pretty already!
I cut some stars for texture from white cardstock using Sizzix Framelits Die Set 3PK w/Stamps - Bethleham .
Next I stamped Noel and some randomly placed snowflakes using Sizzix Framelits Die Set 5PK w/Stamps - Glory to the King with blue ink. I then added a skinny strip of silver tape diagonally and my die stars from Sizzix Framelits Die Set 3PK w/Stamps - Bethleham
I cut a back for the bookmark using (Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 8PK - Planner Bookmark) and blue cardstock.
I finished decorating by adding some striped Washi tape to the top of the bookmark and some glitter drops in red.
Have a great day! Jeanne
