A bookmark is an easy present to make for someone special who loves to read. It's also lightweight and easy to post. There are lots of different ways to design your bookmark and here's an idea to make a busy bee bookmark using rubber stamps.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Over 10's
Level: Medium

Materials
White cardstock
Sponge
Distress ink pad in mid yellow to honey colour
Pigment ink pad in a dark orange and black
Honeycomb rubber stamp
Bee rubber stamp

Method
Cut your cardstock into a long rectangle to make your basic bookmark.
Using a sponge, dab the distress ink all over and don't forget to do both sides of the bookmark.

Lay your honeycomb rubber stamp on the table with the pattern side up.
Place the dark orange pigment ink on top and dab all over.
Print your honeycomb stamp onto the bookmark.

Once it's dry, use the bee stamp and black ink to stamp lots of bees all over. You can even stamp some half on and half off.
