Doodle Pantry Bookmarks

Hi everyone! I have a fun project I did this evening to show you. These are bookmarks made using the set called "Critter Tops" from Doodle Pantry. There are seven animals in the set, I did not use the ants. I used the outline set but there is also a colored set of the same images.
Here is a closer picture of the Birdie and the Turtle.


At Try It On Tuesday challenge they wanted us to alter something from Christmas wrapping. I didn't have anything like that but I did alter a Christmas project. I purchased this set of wooden bookmarks from Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off just before Christmas. You can see in the picture below how they look. My original idea was to pop off the wooden faces on the bookmarks and then just use the bottom. But, there was three different faces and they were all 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 inches so I left those all on and cut a piece of scratch paper the same size and then drew that around my animals so they are nice and sturdy on the wooden bookmarks.


I also laminated the Doodle Pantry images. I used double sided tape to get them to stay on the wooden Christmas faces of the bookmarks. At Crafty Sentiments they wanted to see bookmarks and that is where this idea all grew from. At Party Time Tuesday they are having an anything goes challenge so I am submitting these into that one also. The set came with 12 bookmarks so I have 6 more to make and then I will be sending them to the hospitals for the kids from Send A Smile 4 Kids. Aren't these going to be just darling peeking over the top of a book. =) Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
