DIY – Magnetic Bookmarks

I had posted a picture of my Harry Potter bookmarks that I had made as stocking stuffers and a few people had asked how to make them. I’m happy to report, it’s pretty darn easy.

I used Canson XL watercolor paper, a 2 inch circle die, and some Love Cynthia stamps.

Using the circle die, I placed it on the folded strip of paper and ran it through my Sizzix Big Kick. This way it will come out with a folded circle.

 

 

 

I folded the paper in half and place the circle die on it leaving space at the top, so that when I ran it through my Sizzix Big Kick, it would have a folded circle.

I stamped using black Versafine ink and used Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I thought that heat embossing it made it looked a lot prettier.

 

 

Then the fun part, coloring! I used Spectrum Noir markers. They blend well on this Canson XL watercolor paper.

I found these magnet sheets at Daiso ($1.50 store). They have the white backing you see but it’s easily removeable. I remove it because it adds additional thickness that you don’t need. But I use it to cut 1 inch sIMG_3070 (1).jpgquares.

 

 

Then I used Scor-pal double-sided adhesive to the magnets and added it to the bookmarks.

 

 

Then you’re done and ready to use it in your planner or book!
