Hi there :) I'm Elizabeth and I blog over at Broken Treasures about paper crafting and life with three kids (ages 6, 5, and almost 3). I have a project to show you - super simple and easy to do with any scrap papers you have around. These make the perfect teacher gift, tie-on gift topper or stocking stuffer.
I cut paper 2 1/2 inches x 6 inches and then took strips of patterned paper and glued them on the top. For the gray one I used staples and the purple ones I just used a tape runner to adhere the patterned papers.
Quick easy tip. Take strips of paper and cut a triangle out of the bottom to give the banner look. This is a great way to use up those scraps of paper you have laying around. For these bookmarks I used Avonlea and Moonlight papers. Then I used an alphabet stamp set and spelled out READ. You could personalize these with a Teacher's name or for each of your children.
Happy Reading and gift giving :) Hope you'll stop by my blog for some other fun crafting tips. Thanks again to Melissa for having me!
