Thankful Thursday Design Team Post--Bookmark

My kids LOVE to read, so making a bookmark should be something I do all the time, but I haven't!  I was stuck for a while for ideas but then I remembered that my son applied for a position to the Green Team at his school and he got it!  I was so proud of him!  The Green Team is a team of students that helps keep the school green and eco-friendly.  I decided he needed a "green" bookmark!  Besides encouraging people to be green, I used only scraps from my scrap bin, so the bookmark is physically green too by using scraps! 
The bookmark was pretty simple!  I cut a rounded corner rectangle from George and Basic Shapes (LOVE THAT CART!).  I then used Give a Hoot to cut out the "Go Green" phrase and the frog!  

Here's a close up of the frog!  I cut all the layers, including the shadow!  I think he's really cute!  My son picked all the colors and the frog and phrase!  Don't you think he did a great job? He wanted googly eyes too, so we plopped them on as well and it sure adds some personality! Lastly, I added a few fibers to the top to make sure the bookmark stays in place!

Thanks for looking and I love comments!

  1. Hi Jen!! You and your son did a wonderful job. I have Give a Hoot and don't remember seeing that froggy... I love how visiting other crafters help me rediscover carts I've had a while! :)
