Reading Makes You Wise

Hello!  For the last couple of weeks, the ABC Toys and Crafts DT has been showing off fun Back To School Projects on the ABC Design Team Blog.  For my project today, I thought I would make a fun little bookmark (because you know I love to make them:)

Now that school's back in session, the reading homework has begun! I pulled out this darling owl from the My Cute Stamps Set Little Forest Friends ~so perfect for a bookmark!  I stamped the owl with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copics. I used a Nestabilities Labels 10 Die to cut out my bookmark along with some Echo Park Paper Co. Country Drive dp. The top of the bookmark was embossed with the PTI woodgrain impression plate and I added a pretty punched border with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch. The branch that the owl is perched on is also from the My Cute Stamps Little Forest Friends Set and a little ribbon and baker's twine finished it off!

I hope you've enjoyed our Back To School Projects these last couple of weeks!  There is still time to play along with the Back To School Challenge HERE and don't forget that you get
