I loved painting each one of these little guys...they make for the perfect stocking stuffer! They each have their own unique little face with a smile! I love to read a good paperback and just like the smell and feel of holding a real book. You can just never have enough bookmarks!
So here is how I made them! I do have mine up for sale on Etsy currently - so if you would like to purchase on you can head on over HERE!
First tape down your paper and separate each bookmark shape - I like to put a 1/4" border around mine.
Then I pencil in my snowman shapes.
Using Black gouache paint I painted my backgrounds.
Once the backgrounds are dried I put in the faces and orange carrot nose.
Using White gouache and a small brush I add snow to the tops of the nose and head and then take a wet toothbrush, splatter the snow flakes.
Remove the tape once they are dry.
Trim and cut them separately. It's okay that no two are exact - that what makes them hand made!
Then just pop in a hole punch at the top and pull a ribbon through!
Then package them up for the holidays!
