The reading corner

cypdt29thapr 002

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Well Read.We have the fabulous Melonheadz Illustrating as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I’ve made a corner bookmark as I haven’t made one of these in ages.Plus my DS2 has decided to plough his way through his older sister’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.I found this cute image at Cre8tive Hands and he’s called Boy Reading.I’ve coloured him with Copic Ciaos before fussy cutting him and adding him to the bookmark.A tutorial for this can be found at Splitcoast Stampers.The only difference I have made is to punch the border at the bottom before cutting it down to make the 4″ square.I’ve added some Bazzill Basics card.The top piece has been embossed with a script folder,the bottom one has had a border punched before adhering a strip of alphabet paper.Some jute twine has been threaded thru’ a wooden button then wrapped around.A leftover piece of the alphabet paper has been used to cover up where the string goes around the back to give a neater finish.

Supplies :

Image : Boy Reading by Cre8tive Hands
Colouring Medium : Copic Ciao Markers
Paper & Card : DP DCWV The Mini Stack 3,Bazzill Basics Cardstock,Craft UK Limited 6 x 6 Kraft Card Blank cut down for bookmark base
