I'm working on my Home Decor projects and will be posting them all this week. But, before I get started on that, I wanted to share these bookmarks that I made using the new SOPHIE Cricut Cartridge. I'm sorry... this cartridge is exclusive to the Cricut Circle, but I just HAD to show you the cool 'bookmark' feature that it has!
These are some of the prettiest bookmarks I have ever seen! Every image on this cartridge has a coordinating bookmark with 1 layer. I cut the non-shift image out of recycled plastic and cut the layers out of my new favorite cardstock, LEMON FLOWER by DCWV. (hehee... I told you I bought several of those paper stacks!)
I think that these bookmarks would make great gifts.
I chose two bookmarks that have different shapes and then layered the butterfly and bird on top of them. All cuts are from the SOPHIE Cricut Cartridge.
I layered both front and back of the bookmarks.
The butterfly is two layers which I inked the edges of and added silver glittered skittles down the middle.
The bird is also 2 layers which I inked the edges and added a pearl for the eye.
The plastic I used is something that you all have... it's the blister packs that our cricut cartridges come in. It cuts beautifully in the cricut and to give it a finished frosted look I lightly sanded each side before adding the cardstock layers.
Super easy... very inexpensive... so so cute.
