Xyron and Gel-a-tins Bookmark Tutorial

I know so many of us really love our electronic readers, but there is still something so comforting about actually holding a book in your hands.  So for all of those people who still enjoy turning pages, how about a quick and easy denim bookmark.  When I received the Super Star stamp set from Gel-a-tins, a red, white and blue theme came to mind.

1.  Stamp the images using pigment ink onto canvas cloth.  Cut out the shapes.

2.  Run the canvas shapes through the Xyron Creatopia using the Fabric Adhesive cartridge.

3.  Cut a bookmark from an old pair of jeans, apply the stars.
4. Machine stitch around the stars using dark blue thread.
5.  Finish with a denim bow.

You can't have enough bookmarks. When you're an avid reader there might be 3 or 4 or more books being read at the same time all over the house & car and your purse and...............
