His and Hers Bookmarks

Ever have one of those times where you want to read the same book as your significant other, or as someone else in your home, and yet keep losing your page?  You read when they are asleep, they read when you're at work, etc. ;)  Well, maybe you don't ever have that problem, but that doesn't make these "his" and "hers" bookmarks any less cute.

This is a short post, because you can almost figure out how to make these just by looking at them, but there are lots of pictures because, well I think they're cute. :)  The end.  But actually, here are just a few notes/instructions. Then happy bookmark making. And reading.

Note: For the "his"bookmark, I cut the argyle using my Cricut machine and the Lyrical Letters cartridge.  (This is a great cartridge to own, if you don't have it already.  I use it all the time.) The argyle image is just one of cute extra bonuses to the main font and texts.  :)  Thanks, Cricut.

For the "hers" bookmark, I used some pressed flower stickers, cut out a heart from a page from an old hollowed out book (more on that in my post next week), and then covered over the whole thing with lace for a very feminine texture.

Use pressed flowers and then a heart cut from an old book page.  

Cover with Mod Podge, then lace, press down, then cut off the excess lace when dry. 
 Voila.  His and Hers.  Hers and His. Really, anyone's, just cute.  Read up.

Both reading the same book? Mark two places.  Go on--read ahead. :)

And they lived happily ever after...
