Using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cricut Cartridge is a great base to make bookmarks. This cartridge has a variety of tags that are perfect for making bookmarks. There are rectangular and oval tags with different features and different shaped tops. You can use the hole feature for tying ribbons, fibers, tassels, and twine.
For this handmade bookmark, I cut the scalloped top tag at 4 1/2″. It is from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge. I cut it out of black and gray patterned paper that is in the Black Current Die Cuts With a View Paper Stack. I punched the bottom with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. You can decorate your bookmark any way you want, but keep in mind that you don’t want it too thick.
To decorate my bookmark, I made a layered flower using a punch and flowers from the Walk In My Garden Cricut Cartridge. I used a Stampin’ Up punch for the largest flower. Then I cut two different smaller flowers using the Cricut and stacked them.
I stamped the word READ on gray paper and punched it out with a Stampin’ Up oval punch. To finish it off, I tied 3 black and pink fibers through the hole using a slip knot. I have a friend who knits and shares her scraps. this is a wonderful project for using up bits and pieces!
Bookmarks can be big or small, decorative or plain. With so many options, making bookmarks with the Cricut can keep you and your kids busy for an afternoon. They will be so pleased with the results that they will want to share them with their friends and family. This is a really quick Cricut Project that would be fun for kids. I hope you’ll give it a try!
