Back To School Bookmark: McBroom's Ear


I have had so much fun designing here on Everyday Cricut so far this week.  I cannot believe that I only have one more project left to do.  If you have not already had a chance to head over to my blog please take time to come and check it out and be sure to follow me on my blog!  Hope to see you there!
As a child, McBoom's Ear was one of my favorite books.  As my children have grown up, it has become one of their favorites too.  I am hoping that this project will inspire you to seek out this book for the children in your life too.  This Bookmark along with the Book and a fleece blanket would be an excellent gift for any child.  Sid Fleischman's McBoom Books are Tall Tales and are so entertaining.  Please give them a try and be sure to let me know if you love them as much as my whole family does.

To create this project you will need a Cricut Expression, Design Studio, Country Life and San Serif Cricut Cartridges, a hole punch and Red Ribbon.  You will also need various amounts of Cardstock.  I used American Craft cardstock.

Front of the Bookmark

Both the Cricut Design Studio.cut file and the PDF instructions complete with photographs to re-create this Bookmark are available on my blog http://www.scrappincricut.blogspot.com

Have a wonderful day and be sure to check back Everyday this week for more adorable Back To School Projects for you to make for the kiddos in your life!


Happy Scrappin'
