Embossed Oly-Fun Bookmarks!

I'm so excited to share with you this new Metallic Oly-Fun Fabric from Fairfield!
 I have used their colorful fabrics in many projects and just love the ease of it's use.

Whats great is that the Metallic Oly*Fun™ is a Multi-Purpose Craft Material.
To add shimmer, sparkle, and shine. Easy to cut and sew.  Does not fray.
Can be sewn, glued, stapled, tied, knitted, crocheted and more!
 Great for indoor and outdoor decor!

To make bookmarks like these, you will need the following:
  • Metallic Oly-Fun fabric
  • Scissors and or paper trimmer
  • Any die cutting machine
  • Die cutting platform and plates
  • Any embossing folders
  • Brightly colored permanent markers
  • Wide double stick tape or spray adhesive
  • Cereal box cardboard
1. Trim your cereal boxes to the actual size of the embossing folders.
2. Glue the metallic fabric to each cardboard with the tape or adhesive.


3. Get creative with small squares and strips.

4. Following directions on the platform, place the covered cardstock in your folders and run through the machine. Play around with how you want the embossed design to be, raised or depressed.
5. Color the embossed designs with your markers.
6. Use your scissors or paper trimmer to cut the bookmarks.

 I absolutely love anything metallic and I use a lot of it in my Mexican Folk Art projects!
