Personalized Bookmark Shakers for the Teachers


Yiiiippppeeee!

Today is the last day of school for my kids! I'm am so excited to have them home for the summer and the best part is that I don't have to worry about packing lunches for a while! Oh, the small things that excite me ;)

So for today I want to share with you the fun Bookmarks I made for the kids teachers.


I saw this idea a while ago on You Tube and thought these would be perfect for the teachers. Here is the link to the video for those interested. I did make them a little different then the video instructed.

Here is how I made mine.
First of all I personalized the inside clear bag with each teacher's name using black vinyl. Here is a link to the font I used. The vinyl was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. Next because I do not have a laminator, I used some self laminating sheets that I found at the Dollar Store and just cut them down to size. They worked well, but because I cut close to the edge of the inside bag I wasn't sure how they would hold up. For extra reinforcement, I used my fuse tool to secure the edges. I guess if you didn't have a fuse tool you could also stitch the edges with a sewing machine. Before finishing off the tops of the bookmarks I filled them with various sequin colors, chunky glitter and microbreads. To seal the tops I used clear scotch tape, then wrapped coordination washi tape along the top edge. I finished them by adding an eyelit in the center to add some decorative ribbon, this also secures the layers together.

These bookmarks are fairly large they measure approximately 9 inches long by 2 inches wide. But you can make them to suit whatever size you like.


Hope you like my Personalized Bookmark Shakers for the Teachers. They are so much fun and interactive, all you want to do is shake them! I think these would make great gifts for any reader in your life.

3D High Top Paper Shoe | SVG Cuts

Hi Everyone!

With back to school around the corner, I've been busy creating some fun school-themed projects. Check out this cool sneaker. Don't you just love it?! 

It makes the perfect little back-to-school treat. Surprise your kids with it, or fill it with some treats and give it to the Teacher. Whoever you give it to they will surely love it!


The sneaker file comes from Back to the Books SVG Kit. I definitely want to check it out, so many fun files in this kit!

The pattern paper I used comes from Fleurette Bloom's latest paper collection ABC 123 Paper Pack. Love the chalkboard scribble look. If you're looking for a school-themed paper you'll also want to check out her School Days Paper Pack.


This fun tag was created with the Print and Cut feature of the Silhouette. I have to say I'm really enjoying this function, not only do I save on paper... I also save on stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Happy Crafting :)
