Moon and Star Punch Art Bookmark {Tutorial}

My daughter wanted to create little gifts to give to school friends and we thought handmade bookmarks would be perfect.

 

We used the Eid Mubarak Punch Out Bookmark Tutorial as our inspiration to make these smaller, more compact, versions. Today we’ll use regular cardstock and a small punch. We were able to make quite a few to pass out. We’ll show you how here.

 

Supplies

Cardstock
Scissors
Moon and Star punch
Bonefolder
Doublesided Tape

Start by cutting your cardstock into a rectangle. You can cut different sized ones and don’t really need to measure to get different sized bookmarks.ACraftyArab Moon and Star Punch Art Bookmark Tutorial

Use the bone folder to make a sharp clean fold, lengthwise.ACraftyArab Moon and Star Punch Art Bookmark Tutorial

Punch along one side.  Use the same punch and see how many you can get across without crowding.

Add double sided tape to the inside, on the side that you didn’t punch.

Add a smaller piece of cardstock in contrast color. It’s okay if it’s longer on the side, just make sure it’s shorter on the ends. Add double sided tape around the punched out shapes on the inside.

If you’d like to make a bookmark with different colored insides, just cut out a small piece of cardstock to cover up the negative space of the punch.ACraftyArab Moon and Star Punch Art Bookmark Tutorial

Your punch bookmark is ready to give away. I have to warn you, they are addicting to make.  My daughter is also including a copy of one of her favorite books, Count Your Way though the Arab World, with the bookmark to her teacher.
