Bookmarks for Improved Readers

My SBS8 Sister Kelly, http://kelleast.blogspot.com/, needs bookmarks to reward students who have improved their reading skills, so I made some brown/pink flowered ones for the girls. I used Making Memories Cosmoplitan Collection cardstock and patterned them after tutorials on http://technostamper.blogspot.com/by Mary Jo and by Dawn @
http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/ using flowered eyelets instead. Hope the girls like them!
For the boys I used their school colors of red & blue, but instead of white I cut silver holographic sticker paper on my Wishblade to read, "Way to Go!" and made an arrow at the top. I was trying to find something that they'd hopefully like and actually use!
Reading well is truly one important key to success in life, so I hope these teens will continue to improve their skills for a brighter future!
Papers: Making Memories Cosmopolitan Collection; Red/Navy Linen cardstocks
Embellishments: Flower Eyelets from my stash
Tools: COD; Xyron Wishblade
