Sparkle and Shine Bookmarks

Love to read? Why not add a little sparkle and shine to your books!


You will need:
  • Joy® Iron-On letters
  • Colored paper
  • Chipboard or thick mailers
  • Double stick tape
  • Clear packing tape
  • Scissors
  • Assorted glitter, fine and chunky
  • Colored markers
  • Tacky adhesive
  • Clear place mat






Instructions:
1. Cut your papers and chipboard to your ideal bookmark size. These are 2"x 8".
2. Adhere the papers to both sides of the chipboard with double-stick tape. 
3. Slide the bookmark under the place mat to act as a guide when sprinkling glitter. With the sticky side up, lay a strip of packing tape on top of the placemat, over the bookmark. If your packaging tape is not wide enough, overlap a second strip. Sprinkle glitter over the tape. 


4.  Remove the bookmark then press firmly onto the tape.  Fold excess tape to the back the bookmark.
5. Add letters to the front of the bookmark with tacky glue.  


Happy reading!
