When I was using the Pretty Label punch for the bottom of my screen card I came up with another use for the punch, it could be used for bookmarks. I measured one of the punched labels and cut a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock to 1-7/8" x 6-1/4". At the top of the cardstock I measured 1/2" from the top on both sides and added a small pencil mark. When I fed the cardstock through the punch I lined the pencil lines up on each side to make sure the top was straight before punching.
I didn't have a clue what I wanted to stamp on it so I had a look through my stamps and as soon as I saw the Wild About Flowers stamp set I knew that would be perfect. When we have a new Annual catalogue I order the new Whisper White ribbons that are in it and colour them myself, but when I saw the new Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double Stitched ribbon I was really drawn to it. I made the bookmark to coordinate with the ribbon using Daffodil delight and Pear Pizzazz ink.
As today is Father's Day I also made a bookmark for my Dad. I used the Large Letters Framelits Dies to die-cut DAD in Marina Mist cardstock and stamped the Hardwood Background stamp on the letters with Marina Mist Ink. I used Very Vanilla Thick cardstock cut to 1-7/8" x 8-1/4" for the bookmark and stamped the Hardwood Background with stamped off Sahara Sand ink.
I knew my Dad wouldn't like a tassel on the bookmark so I thought about wrapping some Linen Thread around the top and bottom but that's not he's taste either so I've left it quite plain because I know he'll love it and use it.
I hope you have enjoyed my Pretty Label Punch Showcase. My aim was to show how versatile this punch really is, it's definitely worth having in your stash. Please leave a comment to let me know if you have enjoyed this showcase.
