There are two tiny magnets to hold the bookmark in place so you will not lose your page. This is a great back-to-school project so I used a motivational statement suitable for older kids and teens, but it would be good for anyone working toward a goal. I got the idea to make magnetic bookmarks after watching this video here.
Instead of using patterned paper scraps as in the video, I created a cool background with Distress Oxides on scraps of Photo Paper. I layered each colour using the watercolour ink-smooshing technique and dried in between each colour. It's best to work from lightest colour to darkest. When finished, it had a dull appearance but when wiped with a baby wipe, it became vibrant like you see here. I was inspired to try this technique after watching this video here.
Die: Double-stitched Rectangle
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Oxides (Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Twisted Citron, more or less, I was playing)
Other: Neodymium Disc Magnets 5mm x 1mm (ebay), photo paper scraps
This photo shows how the bookmark looks when open and where the tiny magnets have been affixed behind the inky panels (approximately):
Here's how it looks in a book, held securely in place:
Thank you for looking at my bookmark! Wishing you a joyful day!
