I met some new friends a few days ago and he is a teacher of 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. He’s also interested in sharing some stamping with them as an art project.
When I saw some cute Foxy Friends bookmarks on Pinterest I thought “WOW, these would be great for the kids.” I attacked, making some based on the simple bookmark I saw. I also think that I’m not sure about have a class of 10-12 year olds making them because of the tedious little steps along the way. They’re fun. They’re easy. They require a big bit of precision.

The pesky part is punching out and positioning all the pieces:
Be sure to attach the tail pieces to the main body piece before attaching it to the bookmark. Attach the eyes and nose to the face before putting it on the bookmark with Dimensionals.
Using Emerald Green cardstock and the Fringe Scissors, cut some grass. Then snip the ‘blades’ using Paper Snips, being careful not to cut into the fringed bit, and attach to the bookmark. Trim off the excess from the sides.
After ‘mowing the grass to different levels’ I used my Bone Folder to bend the blades a bit.
Having fun making your bookmarks. I just love this Foxy Friends stamp set and the possibilities of creatures you can create.
If you need any of the tools for creating your own bookmarks give me a call (209-352-1059), send me an email (Blythe@StampingWithBlythe.com) or go directly to my Stampin’ Up! online store. Caution: they’re rather addictive!
