Day 6: Laminated Bookmarks

- Assorted Paper
- Scissors or paper trimmer
- Double stick tape or glue
- Laminator & Pouches
- Assported Ribbon

Cut a base of 7”X 2.5” using two sided printed paper such as scrap-booking paper

Decorate the base by using color coordinated papers, apply with double sticky back tape or glue stick.

Tip: Try to keep your project as flat as possible for best results!

To laminate: use an 8.5”X14” thermal laminating pouch. Position your book markers in the pouch so that they have ½ an inch of clearance on all sides. Run the sheet through your laminator and trim as desired.

Tip: You can punch a hole on the top and put a ribbon through the hole. Trim the edges with a corner trimmer for a finished look.

Add an artistic touch when you give books for gifts: you can also use photos, or gift wrap from a special occasion.
