Thank You Teacher Bookmark by Danielle Flanders

I loved Jenni Bowlin's Bingo Alpha Tile Cards and when I saw them in this month's kit, the alphabet letters gave me the idea of creating something for a teacher. Teachers have so many books, so I thought it would be fun to create a bookmark that slides onto the corner of a book page.
Here are the steps to create this bookmark:
1. Fold the Jenni Bowlin bingo card in half horizontally.
2. Sew the bingo card together by machine sewing down the right edge of the folded card.
3. Cut a piece of red cardstock the same length as the yellow journaling card. Punch the edge with a scallop punch. Attach to top of journaling card and stitch if desired.
4. Stamp "thank you, teacher" with alphabet stamps.
5. Adhere chipboard letters from the kit to spell XYZ. Adhere finished journaling card.
6. Punch a heart from red cardstock. Adhere. Attach button from kit over heart.
7. Slide bookmark onto a book page.

Thanks for the inspiration Danielle!
