Bookplates

  1. I was enjoying my morning of not subbing and looking through my Blogs that I love to read. Just Something I Made by Cathe Holden is one of my favorites! She always has tons of free PDF graphic files of cute things. This morning was no different.


She had found an old German Reader and scanned in some of the artwork. She came up with cute vintage animal bookplates. I am currently putting a birthday package together for an avid reader and thought this would be perfect to add to it.
I have so many crafting supplies that I didn't have to buy a thing.
Supplies needed to make it look like mine:
full sheet of sticky label
I just printed out her PDF file onto a full size sheet of sticker paper, then cut out all the book plates. She even has a cute wrapper that you can put around your finished product and a sticker to seal the deal. Since I printed the entire sheet on sticker paper I just peeled off the wrapper and stuck it to a blank piece of paper and then cut it out and wrapped it around all the labels.

I had recently bought two different sized of glassine bags to put my Etsy shop happies in. These labels fit perfectly in the bag. I folded the flap down and used one of her stickers that she included to seal it up. Of course I had to add some twine to pull it all together.
I hope you have someone you can make these for or just for yourself. Thanks Cathe for the great bookplates!!!
