Puppy Bookmark Tutorial

Hello stampers! I made a tutorial for you. I was listening to Christian music and had a heat rice pad thingy around my neck (neck pain) while I made this tutorial. Pretty relaxing! I had not made tutorial for over a year now and I thought I try doing it again.  Not too bad. Just very slow at it.

You'll need a 2.5" x 2.5" pattern paper. Not too busy of a pattern. I tried card stock but it doesn't fold nice.

Fold the paper in half to make a triangle.

Mark at the top of the triangle where it is folded at 1-5/8" from the tip in on both sides. Mark 1" down from the tip to the middle. See photo above where the yellow pattern paper is marked in red. You'll do your marking in pencil. I did the other one in pencil.

Fold on the markings to make the ears.

Fold about 1/2" up at the bottom of the triangle to make the mouth.

Decorate the puppies. I did 2 different ways. The yellow one I drew the eyes, nose, tongue and flowers with a black pen. The other puppy I punch out 2 white pieces of white card stock and drew in the eyes and glue it to the puppy. I drew the nose and then add an upside down heart to make it a tongue. I used the Owl punch for the heart and the eyes.

This one show the nose of the puppies.

Put the puppy peeking in your favourite book or...

showing the face or...

on the top corner of the book.


If you are afraid the puppy will not stay in your book then you can do it this way. You'll need a 2-1/8" x 4" card stock. Trace the top of the dog onto the card stock.

Cut on the trace line and punch the other end of the card stock.

Glue the puppy onto the card stock matching the top and decorate the bookmark. Enjoy!

Make tons to give away! The recipient will love these little cuties!

Puppy Bookmarks

Hi stampers! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.  I had a wonderful one even though my back was killing me (from the car accident). We had Easter dinner for the first time. I had no idea how the tradition goes. We had turkey which I think people celebrate by having ham. Oh, well! It was a good dinner anyway.

Our church had a service on Good Friday for the first time and on Sunday we had services in the morning and evening. Lots of visitors.

I made 2 puppy bookmarks. My youngest daughter made the puppy and gave them to me. I thought it was cute so I made mine out of card stock. A little hard on the folding. Card stock don't fold well. Will have to try pattern paper.

3 different ways to put your puppy in your book. You can put it at the corner of the book too. It is so cute! I like the puppy peeking out from the pages.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Basket Full of Chickies and Bunnies

Hello stampers! I've been sick for awhile. Lots of coughing and weak at times. Finally got my energy back to crafting again. Anyway, I'm thankful for the good weather here in Vancouver. It has been beautiful sunshine and warm days for the past 2 weeks. Nothing like the sunshine to brighten up the soul.

I made a basket to hold the chick and the bunny boxes I made to give to the school kids this week. The basket is not strong enough to hold all the boxes. After filling them with treats they're heavy. The card stock is not thick enough to do the job. I have to hold the bottom of the basket so the handle wont break. The basket looks pretty though. Will need to use a thicker card stock. I know the kraft papers I have is thick enough but not the colour I'm looking for.

I added 2 flowers to the sides of the basket. I used the Fancy Flower Punch to make the flowers.

I filled each favours with candies. Candies are kids favourite of course. Even if they don't like my little creations I'm sure they'll like the candies. :)

 Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Chicky And Bunny

Hello stampers! It is so good that we have sunshine today. I so need it. The cherry blossoms are blooming making it a lovely sight all around our neighbourhood. I just feel more energize when the weather is nice.

I made 2 animal triangle boxes. I found a video by Julie Davison on YouTube that shows you how to make these 2 cute animals.

I didn't do a good job on drawing the bunny face but it is still cute. The feet was made from an Oval Punch. I had to round one side of the oval to get the heel.

The chick's wings was made using a 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and then cut it in half. The beak was made from a square folded in half.

The chick and the bunny are just too cute! Happy April Fools Day!
