Bottle Shaped Bookmarks and Cards

Hi Crealies fans...have you seen the  new Bottle die from is a huge one and in this post I wanted to show you how you can use it not just to make regular cards
but to make bookmarks and flashcards.

The Celebrate text die from Crealies looks superb on the  scroll banner. I made a dozen or so bookmarks using the bottle die and made a basket to hold them.

The basket was made with the Crea- Nest-Lies XXL dies and is decorated with foamiran flowers  made with Crealies dies.

Here is how you can make a basket: Take an 8 x 6 ½ inch card and score on the 8 inch side at 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 inches. Turn and on the 6 ½ inch side score at 2½ and 4 inches.

Cut on the red lines as shown in the picture above and fold along the scorelines.

Decorate the rectangles using pattern paper cut
with the Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL dies no. 76.

Punch holes as shown above on all six 1 inch rectangles.For a neater finish,  round the outer corners of the inner four 1 inch rectangles as shown in the picture above.

Bring the two innermost 1 inch rectangles towards the center
and using their holes as a guide, punch a hole in the central large rectangle.
Bring all the other rectangles towards the center and thread a brad through their holes
and secure. Do this on the other side also and your basket is ready!

My 12 year old daughter is learning about elements and compounds in Chemistry and is using the Bottle shaped cards as flashcards to help her learn the chemical names.
