This is Pam, a member of the QuicKutz Design Team. My children recently had a month-long reading theme in their school. This assignment got me to thinking. April is supposed to bring showers, and what better thing to do on a rainy day that curl up with a good book and read, or maybe do a little crafting! I decided to combine my two favorite activities, reading and crafting, and develop a cute little bookmark.
Felt, solid and patterned
I started by using my Epic tool to cut the patterned felt with the new Zigzag Edges die (CC-BDR-065) and the solid felt Flower die (RS-0008). I must admit, it was my first experience cutting felt with my dies. While the dies cut great on the patterned felt, I had to trim the edges of the solid felt flowers.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE these new border dies?! I think the zigzag is my fave! After cutting out my shapes, I laid the zigzag-edged patterned felt onto the black felt and cut my desired bookmark size.
I hope April brings you a lot of sunshine and Spring flowers, but if rain heads your way, just grab your craft supplies and play a little!
