Hot Diggity Dog Bookmark and Wallet

Posted by SheilaHalliwell, 21 Dec, 2011

A fun bookmark makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves to read. Use the Hot Diggity Dog collection to create this cute make.

  1. To make the bookmark - Cut a piece of cream cardstock to measure 19x6cm and round the corners.

  2. Trim a piece of bird patterned paper from the paper pack slightly smaller in size and round the corners before sticking in place on to the cream card.

  3. Punch a hole through the top of the bookmark and set an eyelet in place. Tie a length of ribbon through the hole to complete.

  4. To make the wallet - Take a tall cream Papermania Card Blank and cut it to 19cm in length. Stick it together down the side and across the bottom using narrow Stick It! Double-Sided Tape. Round all the corners with the Xcut Corner punch.

  5. Cover with bird patterned paper from the A5 Hot Diggity Dog Paper Pack and round the corners before sticking in place. This will be the wallet to hold the bookmark.

  6. Cut a piece of green polka dot paper to 1.5x9cm and attach it to the cream border strips then trim off any excess. Glue in place near the top edge of the wallet then place a length of cream satin ribbon across the back of the wallet and tie in a bow at the front on top of the decorative strip.

  7. Place a ‘with love’ topper at the bottom of the wallet. Now add the words 'For You' using the green Papermania Alphamini cardstock stickers.

  8. Cut a piece of green polka dot paper to 15x5cm and round the corners. Stick this to the front of the bookmark approximately 2.5cm from the bottom.

  9. Push out the decoupage cat and birdcage panel from the Hot Diggity Dog Decoupage and build up the layers using Stick It! 3D Foam Dots. When completed, attach it to the bookmark.

  10. Place a Special Friend sentiment to the lower edge of the bookmark.

  11. Cut two lengths of spare cream card and punch along the edges with the Xcut Leafy Lace Border Punch.
