Magnetic Bookmark using Punches with a tutorial - LNS group

The challenge with the LNS group is to use punches.  That's one think I love to do, is figure out how many uses a single punch has.  And I love to make flowers with them.

Today I combine that love by making magnetic bookmarks for my craft sale next week. These book marks were inspired by a tutorial that I found on Pinterest and can be found here  A tutorial, with alterations to the original tutorial will be at the bottom of the post.

Punches used:
  • Scallop tag topper 
  • 1 3/4" scallop circle
  • 1 1/4" circle
  • 1 1/4" scallop circle
  • 7/8" scallop circle
Papers:  All Abloom DSP stack, Always Artichoke, whisper White, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight
Inks: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Punches as listed above, Magnetic sheet


1.  Cut designer paper to 2 3/8 by 2 "
2.  Cut 2 pieces of magnets 1 1/4 by 1 3/4

3.  Attach the magnets to the wrong side of the DSP at the top and bottom ends, and punch one end using the Scallop tag topper punch.

4.  Fold the book mark in half and decorate.
5.  Punch a 1 3/4" scallop circle punch in Always Artichoke, and a 1 1/4" Whisper White Circle punch

6.  Adhere them together and then adhere to the top of the bookmark.

7.  Now make the flower.  I made this bookmark with a particular book in mine, so my daisy is a rust coloured one.

A. Punch 3 using the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch of desired colour (Cajun Craze), and 2 of Daffodil Delight using the 7/8" scallop circle punch.

B.  Remove every other scallop of the larger scallop circle.  Snip between every other scallop in the smaller circle, then make a small snip in the top of each scallop.  Then sponge the formed flowers - with Cajun Craze, and Crushed Curry.

C.  Start forming the flowers by using a pencil eraser or another round object and pushing it into the center of each flower.  Use the stamping pad to do this. The middle will be pressed down and the petals come up.

D.  Form flower by layer them together using a dot of tombo glue between each layer.  Alternate the petals.  Add the 2 yellow ones in the center, and add a large rhinestone in the middle.  Push petals up with your fingers until you are happy with the look of the flower.  Then adhere to bookmark.

Here is what the bookmark looks like on one of the new Kraft journals.
