Mixed Media Bookmarks for Planners

I am making some Mixed Media Bookmarks today to use in your planner, reading or just to mark your page in your journal. These bookmarks can be customized to say whatever you need!

Supplies used:

I used the Simple Screens Starry Starry Night die to cut out three negative spaces on a blue sheet of cardstock. There are a lot of little tiny pieces that are cut with this die, so be sure to have you Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick on hand!

Using the V trimmer, I trimmed around the die cuts, making them more of a bookmark shape.

Next, I adhered another piece of cardstock beneath the die cut and also glued in a tassel on the top. I wanted a tone on tone look and went with two similar shades of blue here, but you could use a contrasting color of cardstock beneath for a much bolder look.

To bring in a mixed media element and also a subtle shine, I added a thin layer of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Aquamarine onto a small part of the bookmark. You want to make sure you apply a super thin layer, because we are not really looking to add bulk or dimension to the bookmark, just some soft texture.

Before the mousse dries, I trimmed and added a a little twine and a few sticker words onto the mousse and pressed down firmly.

After the mousse dried, which takes about 5 minutes of less since it’s a thin layer here, I added a few different Nuvo crystal drops around the bookmark in the center of each small star.

And that’s it! I now have a set of pretty bookmarks, ready to use! I love the details on these bookmarks are they are bound to make you smile every time you use it.
