Today I’ve got a quick craft to share with you that I think would be perfect addition to a Mother’s Day present. These Chalkboard Silhouette Bookmarks, are made with chipboard to make them sturdy, and coated in chalkboard paint so you can customize them as you like.
Here’s how you can make the bookmarks:
You’ll need (click through to purchase supplies, contains affiliate links):
- 1 sheet Chipboard that can be cut with an “e” cutting machine such as a Cricut or Silhouette
- Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Explore
- 1 sheet pattern paper
- UHU stick
- 2″ wide satin Ribbon
- Chalkboard Paint
- Silhouette Outline
Upload your silhouette shape into the design software that came with your cutting machine. The load in the chipboard and set the machine to cut “Chipboard”. Cut out your chipboard pieces.
Lightly coat the front of 1st of your chipboard pieces with chalkboard paint. Let dry.
Cut your SAME design AGAIN this time with pattern paper and your image reversed.
Glue your reversed pattern paper image to the 2nd piece of chipboard.
Using double stick tape stick down a piece of ribbon to the wrong side of the paint coated chipboard. Then using your glue stick, glue the wrong side of the paint coated chipboard to the wrong side of the pattern paper coated chipboard.
That’s it you’re done!
