Petal Card Die: Page Corner Bookmarks

Here's another quick and useful project to add to my adventures with the Petal Card Die... a corner bookmark!  I love these bookmarks that sit on the corner of the page, and this one even has the addition of a tab for easy on and off!

I used Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper for my bookmark, cutting a 4 7/8" square to run through my Big Shot with the Petal Card die.  I used a Cutting Plate and a shim (a piece of cardstock) underneath my die, the die, the paper on top of the die then my Crease Pad on top of the paper.  This gave me a very nice cut and score lines.  Each machine is calibrated a little bit differently, so try yours out to see what combination you need to get the perfect cut and score.

Fold up the bottom scallop toward the inside of the bookmark and adhere; then fold in the scallop to your left and adhere also.  The top and right scallops should be folded in and adhered only to each other where they overlap.  Punch a tab out with the Round Tab Punch (I used cardstock for my tab but you could also use the opposite side of the DSP for a pretty effect) and adhere it to the right side with the tab extending from the right of the bookmark.

For the finishing touch, you can cut and punch out a fairly small image or you could use an appropriate sentiment like "Thinking of You"  and layer it on punch-out before adhering it to your bookmark.  On the Melon Mambo bookmark, I have used the "Friend" heart from the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and punched it out with the Full Heart Punch!  Easy-peasy!  It's not even layered!

I've also included a couple of others that I made for samples  I have another one that i seemed to have not photographed yet but will add it later.

This 6 x 6 Level I Hostess Gift Paper Packs are just perfect for making these, so if you have one, you are all set to roll.  If not, why not have a home workshop with your friends and earn one free, along with other free merchandise!

The second bookmark (Lavender) is embellished with the bunny from the Eggcoutrements set; the third (More Mustard) bookmark uses the Circle Circus set and would be a nice choice for a guy.

This die is so much more versatile that I ever realized.  There are so many ways to use this and I'm tickled to have it!  I will be using it even more now!  You can order it from your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, or from me or my SU website here.  Click on "Shop Now".
