Happy Hump Day!! Today's project is a quick and easy gift idea or just something for yourself- an Envelope Corner Bookmark featuring Stampin' Up's Love Sparkles stamp set, Bold Butterfly Framelits and Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
This idea came about when I had grabbed an envelope to use one day and realized it was dirty, so didn't want to use it to send the card I had, but hated to throw it away. It sat on my desk for a little while, but I finally got around to putting this idea I had to work.
These corner bookmarks are made from the two corners of one card sized envelope.
How To Make This Envelope Corner Bookmark:
Start by grabbing an envelope that needs recycling. You can even use a used envelope from something that was mailed to you and just adjust the size of your cardstock accordingly. Seal the envelope if it's not already and the cut the corners off the envelope- you should be able to get at least two bookmarks from each envelope.
Then, I cut two pieces of Watermelon Wonder cardstock to fit the cut envelope corners. I found it easier to cut a square of the cardstock first and then cut the square in half to get the two triangles. I started with a square about 4". If you cut the envelope too much, just trim the envelope around the cardstock you just cut.
On this one, I embossed the Watermelon Wonder triangle with the Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Then, I cut a Silver Metallic Foil Doily in half and wrapped it around each corner adhering it with Mini Glue Dots. The whole triangle was adhered to the envelope corner bookmark with Tear and Tape Adhesive.
The Silver Foil Sheet was die cut with the Butterflies Thinlits dies and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper was die cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits and both were adhered with Mini Glue Dots and then adhered to the envelope corner bookmark.
The second bookmark uses the other half of the Watermelon Wonder square turned triangle. Rub the Embossing Buddy all over the cardstock triangle to keep the static down.
First I stamped the 'Sparkle' greeting from the Love Sparkles stamp set with Versamark ink then sprinkle with Gold Embossing Folder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Then the little stars confetti stamp from the Love Sparkles stamp set was stamped with White Craft Ink and sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and also heat set with the Heat Tool.
The smaller greeting from the Love Sparkles stamp set was stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock and then punched with the Classic Label Punch.
I then added little strips of Rhinestones Basics Jewels.
Of course, you can dress up your envelope corner bookmarks any way you like, just keep in mind my tip for not adding too much bulk.
