Here are the cutest and easiest bookmarks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Start with a strip of card stock 1 and 1/2 inches wide by what ever length you want. Mine are a bit short because they needed to fit in the card in the post above this one. Slide the card stock into your punch from the bottom as shown in this picture. You may need to use the tip of your scissors or some other object to help align it correctly. Make sure your paper is straight and just punch the top.
This is what your strip will look like when you are done.
Adhere a very small amount of adhesive to the very top of a scallop circle. (as a side note it may be easier to put it on the top of your strip so you know your scallops will line up and there will not be adhesive below the eyelet). Do not put adhesive on entire thing -- you just want to hold it in place while your attach the jumbo eyelet.
Line up your punched out scallop with the top of your strip and attach.
Use your Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the center of your scallop flower. (notice I added a circle to the center of mine before doing this).
Add a jumbo eyelet to the center.
Set your eyelet with your Crop-A-Dile. You can of course use a regular any where hole punch and eyelet setting tool too, but I love my Crop-A-Dile! Now wasn't that soooooo simple? They look really cute in a book and stay put thanks to the eyelet.
