How To Make a Surprisingly Easy Shaker Bookmark

Here's a quick and easy tutorial for a shaker bookmark. Shaker Cards and Planner Inserts are all the rage. Why not expand that to bookmarks and planner bands? After letting the idea play around in my mind for awhile this is what I came up with.

 This particular idea requires a Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool. This is only my second project with the Fuse so the learning curve is minimal. You will also need a page protector, a head band, assorted sequins,  Rinea Foiled Paper and Rinea Ghost Ink. The stamp I used is from In God's Time a clear stamp set by Joy Clair.
 Step 1: Stamp image onto foiled paper, let set, and remove ink with wipe as outlined in the instructions accompanying Ghost Ink.
Step 2: Trim image from foiled paper leaving a 1/4" shaped edge.
Step 3: Place shaped paper into page protector, flush with bottom seal.
 Step 4: Use Fuse tool to seal page protector around the edges of the shaped paper, leaving a narrow gap between the paper and the seal. Leave the top open. Trim the sealed shape from the page protector.
 Step 5: Place elastic head band on back of sealed image. Seal strips of page protector over the band to hold it in place.
 Step 6: Add Sequins, seal top of shape. Trim excess.
 An elastic headband will fit most books and is wide enough not to damage the pages. Purchase an assortment and make yourself a bookmark in every color. Then start over, making bookmarks for friends!
