FRIENDSHIP CLIPS: A tutorial



Instructions

  • How to make a bookmark. Friendship Clips / Bookmarks - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, cut the paper that will be used for covering the back of the chipboard. Using your chipboard as a template, place it on the backside of your paper and trace around it. Then cut out your circle shape just inside the line. This will make it smaller than the actual size of your chipboard and will cover the back of your chipboard. Put aside.

    Now work on the front of the chipboard. Cover and center your paper over the chipboard. It should be a little larger than the board itself so that there is excess paper to fold over the back. Glue down front.

A very clever idea, simple and fun. It's a great use for little pieces of fabric. Or recycling old odds and ends.
