Teachers' Appreciation Week at Marker POP Blog

Hey there, welcome back to Crafty Time 4U!  This week is Teachers' Appreciation week, so I'm at the Marker POP blog sharing with you, the book marks that I created for my son's teachers. Book marks are very versatile because you can used them as a tags for your gifts, a very useful tag, right? Summer is the time of the year where I read the most, so cute book marks, would be very handy.
Very simple one layer only, to avoid bulk so they lay flat inside the book.
I used the adorable "best pun ever" stamp set by Lawn Fawn,  some distress ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I won this stamp set from the last Lawn Fawn Inspiration week, however the stamp is available at the Marker POP shop! Lawn Fawn Inspiration week is one of my favorite crafty times of the year!
Let's look at them, I hope you'll enjoy them and give them a try!

I will be running these through the laminator, but I wanted to photograph them first, so the plastic from the lamination, wouldn't interfere with the lighting of the photograph.

I used some masking, so I could add some distress ink  shading, to add more color! The word "teacher" is from the "A good apple" stamp set, also by Lawn Fawn

The hole reinforcement that I used, is from the "tag you're it die set" by Lawn Fawn I cut them form the "Let's Polka Mon Amie" paper pad, also by Lawn Fawn.

I tied the book mark to a bottle of luxury hand soap, but you can also tied to a bag of cookies or such. I also added some faux stitching with a Copic Multi-liner

Copic Markers I used: Trophy: E27, Y28, Y15, Y11; teapot and tea cup: RV13, RV21, RV10 BG53, BG02; fan: BG15, BG13, BG11, C5, C3, C1,: plus some highlights with a white gel pen

Supplies:
 Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll see you soon with more Crafty Time 4U!
