Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too asked us to create end of school teacher gifts. This is what I came up with. I cut the bookmark from the Plantin' Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge at 7 inched wide (turn the fit to width button on your Expression and then set the dial to 7 inches.)
The apples were cut from the Country Life Cartridge at 2.42 inches - but you could just cut them at 2.5 - I used a Gypsy. For the apple on the left I added some Glossy Accents to make it shiny. The apple on the right I added some Xmas Red Stickles to make it sparkly.
I used some foam Thickers to spell out "thanks." I had to fiddle with them a lot to get the placement right, but I think it came out kind of fun and still easy enough to understand.
Along the top I tied some pretty green and white ribbon and added some self adhesive green bling from my stash around the circle opening.
For the finishing touch I went around the edges with a red gel pen.
To be honest I'm not sure how well it would work as a real bookmark because of the depth of things like the Thickers... but I still think it's very cute. Be sure and stop by Craft Junkie Too today to see what the other gals created!!
