Tuesday Tutorial: Halloween Bookmarks

Hi! Kathy Martin here today with a very simple and fun Halloween bookmarks project using Doodlebug's adorable new 3x3 Create-A-Cards.
Since our kids get more candy at Halloween that they can possibly eat, I like to create alternative goodies like these bookmarks and I think you will love how quick and easy they are to make!

Using the new 3x3 Create-A-Cards, cut in half diagonally.
Using a 3" length of a Fancy Frills border sticker, fold in half along the open edge of your card to seal. Each card will make two bookmarks. One of the bookmarks will have to be sealed on two sides.
This is what the back of your bookmark will look like with the Fancy Frills border sticker attached.
Now you can decorate your bookmark with papers and accents from Doodlebug's Haunted Manor collection. On a couple of my bookmarks, I started with a Cute Cuts die for a background and attached it to the bookmark with adhesive foam tape for dimension.
Layered over the Cute Cuts, I added some Icons Cardstock Stickers using more adhesive foam tape. I also added google eyes to all the Halloween spooks.

A little Doodle Twine was used for the tag on one bookmark and the spider on another.

These bookmarks are very versatile, you could make them for any holiday or occasion! Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and create some spook-tacular bookmarks!

Supply List: Haunted Manor Collection, Icons, Gallery of Ghouls, Cute Cuts, Doodle Twine – Halloween Assortment, Create-A-Card Mini Stitched Cards, Fancy Frills - Tangerine, Beetle Black
