Clearly Inspired Challenge WINTER

VALENTINE'S MAGNETIC HEART BOOKMARK

Today's Clearly Inspired Challenge is WINTER. To make anything that has to do with winter like winter sports, holiday, weather etc. So....I chose the winter holiday Valentine's Day. And made this Valentine's magnetic heart bookmark using these adorable new releases BILLY BEE and BEE KIND from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

I made this bookmark starting with a 2 1/2x5" piece of heavy carstock. I folded it in half and made my heart by starting at the top. I found the middle and drew the line vertically down the front. From the mark at the top (along the fold) I measured 3/8 on both sides of the middle line. Then I measured 1/2 " down from the top and drew a horizontal line across. I then drew lines from each mark to the middle point at 1/2" down to form the "V" at the top. Next from the top I made a horizontal line across that was 1 1/4" from the fold. Then from the bottom middle line I measured and marked 3/8" from the middle on both sides of the line. Then I drew a line from the side mark to the bottom mark on both sides and cut making the heart! Simple. Next I cut two 2 1/2" squares of dp. I then spread double sided tape close to the edges and then placed tape side down on the dp and cut excess, repeating on the back. Next I stamped the sentiment and bee in black on the dp. Then I stamped the bee on white cardstock and watercolored, cut out adhered on top of dp and used dimensional glaze to finish off. Last step, once glaze dried, I pealed off the adhesive that came on the magnetic stamps and replaced with tacki tape (it is stronger) then I placed where I wanted. Done. Real simple and so cute.
