Flower Bookmark card
Wow do we have a lot of birthday's to celebrate in February! For this last one I made a neat card that actually serves two purposes. It's a card and it comes apart to be a bookmark.
Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Give A Hoot, Just Because Cards
Cardstock paper in 3 colors [flower print that matches other two colors, brown, blue]
1 decorative flower brad that matches cardstock
Start with the Just Because Card cartridge and using your flower cartstock and brown carstock cut one of each: cookie and cookie-s. These should be 4 1/2" large. Next, switch to the Give A Hoot cartridge. Cut one charm Hdgehog2 and one charm Hdgehog2-s using your brown and blue cardstock. Cut these at 4" real dial size. Glue your card base together and glue your bookmark together. Do not glue your bookmark to your card! Once glued, cut a small slit in the upper part of your card front. Layer your bookmark on top of this and slide your brad into place. Secure the brad on the inside. Now you have a nice card with a removable bookmark.
