Freebies: Chick Chic Bookmarks

I’m an avid reader of books & I don’t usually stick to reading just one at a time.
I am guilty of dog ear-ing all my paperbacks :p as I am either constantly losing my bookmarks or am just too plain lazy to stick one in between the pages before I fall asleep. (for all who’ve loaned me your books> no, I don’t [or try extremely hard]
not to do so wink*)

To avoid anymore unnecessary e(a)rring on my part, I was just thinking of how I should come up with a cute little bookmark which does not just lie in between pages but gently grips itself to pages for a better hold.

& what better design to use than my latest Easter pattern called Chick Chic. Thus, I present to you, the freebie of the week:
Chick Chic Bookmark. I designed them in many different colors to suit your moods or your book covers! Great as mini gifts for family and friends! (fellow dog ear markers too!)


A list of items you’ll need to make the bookmark:
1. Paper (of a preferably thicker stock)
2. Printer
3. Scissors
4. Box cutter (blade)

Here’s a pictorial tutorial I’ve whipped up:

Have your materials at the ready!

Select and separate the bookmark(s) you want

Using your cutter/blade, start cutting along the wing area from dot to dot located on the wing area.

This creates the flap for which the bookmark grips itself to pages.

Trim the off the excess white paper off the bird & there! You’ve got your bookmark!! ^ -^;;

Chick at work!

I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I had making it!
Have a great weekend folks!!

    Hello! These are super cute and I’d love to make some for goodie bags I need in a couple days. I’m having problems downloading the template. (I downloaded it but it said it’s locked and I need the owner’s password to save it.) Would it be at all possible for you to email it to me? Thank you SO much!! ~Jenna

    Thanks Lore, Edwina & Jenna for the lovely feedback! ^ – ^

    Jenna> We have just tried downloading it from the download link via our blog post. We opened the PDF files using Adobe Reader and the PDF file works & prints alright. Perhaps the problem could be due to opening the downloaded PDF File in another software such as Photoshop?

    The Jinjerup Freebie PDF Files are only meant to be opened and printed using Adobe Reader software. No worries though, we have emailed you the Chick Chic Bookmark PDF Template (in a zipped folder) they should be working fine. Have fun using your printables!
