I was challenged to use my scraps this weekend so I decided to make some of these really cool magnetic bookmarks. I entered these in the DYSU scrap challenge.
A few weeks ago at bible study my friend had similar bookmarks in her bible and easily referenced pages during our study. I asked her if I could see them and took a mental picture of them. Then I came home and made them with my Cricut. Instructions are below.
I used thin magnets to keep the thin profile.
1. Using George and Basics shapes cartridge cut 2.25" curved rectangles.
2. Fold in half.
3. Attach magnets to the backside.
4. Place in book!
I tried decoupage, thin tape, and laminate to cover the front for durability, but ultimately decided they were so easy and cheap to make that it wasn't necessary and didn't add much value to the end product. I think these would make super craft fair items. My friend paid $4 for 8 tags at the local box store.
