Owl Magnetic Bookmark

Owl Magnetic Bookmark
I just came back from Popular Bookstore's English Books RM5 Fiesta at Viva Home Shopping Mall with my family and my husband's cousin brother who came up from Singapore few days ago. He is so happy that he managed to get hold of some books that he been trying to buy. I decided to make a magnetic bookmark to gift to him as I know he do not have any. Furthermore, he really excited when I can handmade something from stamp sets and dies.

The magnetic book that I made will be similar to this bookmark whereby I will apply Jennifer Mcguire's on-the-edge die cutting technique. I find that the popping out bookmark 'header' really useful as it remind me where I stop reading as well it is cute and lovely.

Close-up: The owl
First, I stamp the owl image on white card stock and color it using Copic markers. It is then die cut using the matching dies. 

Close-up: The sentiment
On a yellow strip that is without any folding, the sentiment is stamped first. Then, I measure the half circle where it fits the owl image placement and die cut using Jennifer Mcguire's on-the-edge die cutting technique. Later, the strip is folded just where the upper half circle is cut. The folded bookmark is die cut again as I want to shape the bottom of the folded bookmark.

The result is better that the previous bookmark as there is no fold impression on the bottom half circle. I also added an extra matching layer to the back of the bookmark to make it more sturdy. The owl image is then attached onto the half circle and again an extra matching layer is applied to the back to the owl image to make it more sturdy as well.

Close-up: Shimmer on the owl flying costume and eye mask
For the final touch, some shimmer is applied to the owl flying costume and its eye mask. I also colored the word 'learning' in Copic marker, just to give it a bit of coloring in the sentiment. Finally, magnetic strips are attached to the inside of the bookmark to create a magnetic bookmark.
