Bookmarkers using Happy Bugs

Hello SSS lovers!!  Happy Friday to you all!!!  Kari here with you today to share a project using the adorable set Happy Bugs.  I made these cute book markers!  These are super duper easy to make, not to mention - FUN!!

I started out with the jumbo paper clips you can buy at any office supply store.  I stamped out three images - the bee, the lady bug and the butterfly.  I punched them out with a 1 1/2 circle punch.  For the front and back I punched out with a 2 1/2 scalloped circle punch with some patterned paper and card stock to adhere my images to.  I stamped out the adorable sentiments to adhere on the opposite side of the images with the same 1 1/2 circle punch.  For the bee image - I added some stickles to add that "extra something" to the image.  For the lady bug - I added some Enamel Accents to the lady bug's dots on her body.  For the butterfly - I wanted it to have dimension - so I stamped it once on the circle, and again on scratch card stock so I could Copic color my image, and I adhered the butterfly with some glossy accents for security so I could make it look like the butterfly is popping off the circle :)  I adhered the scalloped circles to the jumbo paper clips with large glue dots.  To finish off the scallop circles - I paper pierced each scallop :)

Here is another look :)

You can get this cute set, along with a lot more cute stamps, and now DIES at the Sweet Stamp Shop!!!
Have a nice and SWEET weekend!!
