Teacher Bookmarks

As part of the Mess Maker's class gift for her preschool teachers, I was asked if I would make a bookmark for each teacher.  Ummmmm, yeah!!!  I can't resist the opportunity to make something for someone!  :)

For these bookmarks, I cut a piece of dark brown cardstock at 3 1/4" x 7 1/2".  I added a slightly smaller piece of blue patterned paper on top...it has sort of a "vintage" feel to it.  Then I printed each student's response to the question, "I like Ms. ____ because...".  I added the class name and school year to the top, trimmed it slightly smaller than the blue patterned paper and adhered the strip on top.

I cut the children die-cut from A Child's Year at 2" and adhered it to the bottom of the bookmark.  To finish, I added an eyelet to the top, threaded ribbon and hemp through and added wooden beads to the ends of the hemp.

They have somewhat of a "vintage" look to them.  I hope they'll like them...they've been GREAT teachers to the Mess Maker all year and I sooooo appreciate them!  :)
