Hello…I hope you are starting your weekend off great (in spite of the current lockdown, we are at least 9 weeks into this in So Cal) and that you’ll have plenty of time for crafting and other happy pursuits.
I went back to the drawing board and decided to add a new set of vintage bookmarks to those I have already released.
As for today’s freebie, I am doing something a little bit different, I have stuck to an ephemera/vintage color theme using a french ledger book page with lovely french script (from the Graphic’s Fairy’s site) and a vintage library card for a book on fairy tales . This time I used this lovely blue/cool color themed watercolor flowers in keeping with Memorial Day. However, the color theme is right for any time you want cool colors.
I love pretty bookmarks and I have several since I love to read. I’m excited to add these to my designs and hope you find them functional as well as pretty.
Facts About the Vintage Bookmarks
As for the details about the freebie, there are 4 bookmarks that measure approximately 2″ wide by 7″ tall. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journaling, junk journaling (as a belly band, perhaps?) or other types of memory keeping or just what they were designed for to keep your place in your latest read!
This free printable has 4 elements on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file. This freebie’s file size is rather large at approximately 4 MB. The elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp. To make them more durable, try laminating them if you own a laminating machine. Punch a hole at the top and add a pretty matching or contrasting ribbon
Note: The design was laid out on a landscape orientation, so please remember to change the orientation on your printer when you send to print. The paper textures used (french ledger sheet) and vintage library card were scanned at a very high dpi and the flowers are high resolution watercolor images.
Materials and Supplies
Some of the supplies are optional, the additional supplies are mentioned in the event you want to make your bookmarks a tad fancier.
- White cardstock
- Scissors or slide cutter
- Silhouette Digital Cutter or Cricut, there are mostly straight cuts, so your digital cutter (if you own one) is not necessary.
- Laminating machine, if you own one.
- Hole Punch
- Ribbon or contrasting ribbon
