Hey there! I've got another adorable and quick project for my guest DT duties over at SP and Company today. This project could be easily done as an assembly line process for quick and cute gifts for the kids on your holiday gift list. This paired with a book of their choice would be perfect ;)
I've got a simple bookmark today featuring the gingerbread man from the Cutest Gingerbread Man set. Since I'm a book type and I wear glasses, this guy HAD to have glasses. I spied the glasses from the Vintage October: Falling for Autumn set. And ya know what? They fit PERFECTLY. He's the right touch of bookworm for my taste! And I found the perfect sentiment from the Swirly Doos set.
For the bookmark base, I just cut and glued together two pieces of patterned paper cardstock I had that matched my little gingerbread man, who was just cut out of kraft. I stamped with Memento Ink in black and colored him in with Spectrum Noir markers, my Spica glitter pen for the tips of his hands and feet to give him that sugary look, and a white marker to add the mouth.
For the ribbon, I had a spool of this fun grosgrain on hand that matched perfectly. Punched the hole, tied the ribbon and rounded the corners and I'm done!
I seriously love this little guy a LOT. And what I love is that you could customize your bookmarks for every boy and girl with the different faces that come with the set!! Look at the other sets too to see what elements you can pair this guy or gal with! I just love stamping with SP!
Leave me some love. I always appreciate it!
