How To Guide - Step 1

Cut the white cardstock in to THREE strips, each measuring 6 x 2"

How To Guide - Step 2

Use the Banner Punch on one end, of each of the bookmarks. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use a hole punch on the other end, of each of the bookmarks. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply some ink, from the Izink Aurore, on to a craft or glass mat. 

Spritz with a little water, then pick up the ink, on both sides, of one of the bookmarks. Dry the ink with a heat gun, or hang it up to dry. You can ink one side at a time, drying in between. 

Repeat these steps using the Izink Cerise, on both sides of the second bookmark, and the Izink Ocean on the third one. 

Dry all the ink thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up one, or more, of the stamps from the Retro Stamps Collection, in the Onyx Black Versafine.

Randomly stamp on to one side of each of the bookmarks, ensuring some of the images are taken off the edges. Do not be to precise, as a random, distressed look is required.  

I chose to stamp on one side of each of my bookmarks, but you can do both sides if you wish. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the detailed stamp, from the Hooray Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

On each of the Bookmarks, stamp your floral image in a different position. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around the bookmarks and the punched out holes. 

How To Guide - Step 8

To finish, tie some Bakers Twine through each of the bookmarks.
