Tissue Tape Jar Bookmark Tutorial

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy gift of a bookmark for mom on Mother’s Day. Find a nice book and place this bookmark through its pages for a thoughtful gift set. Using Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape Denim and Flower from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Collection, I made this cute jar shape full of sweet flowers.

Using a piece of white cardstock, I covered it with Denim Tissue Tape. Then I placed on top of a sheet of 3D Foam Creative Sheet and trimmed to size. I die-cut my piece using my manual die cutting machine to make sure to cut twice for a clean cut.

Next I embellished the jar with Lace Ribbon by adhering it with Adhesive Sheet 4 x 6″. Make sure to burnish the back – I used a bone folder. Then place on the front of jar (trim the excess) and wind four times around the jar neck with Girlie Grunge Twine in Pink.

For the tag, I embossed it and then spritz with a mixture of water and Pigment Powder – Wine for a little sparkle.

With a combination of Dodz Adhesive Dots Small and 3D Foam Squares White Small, I adhered the flower die cuts in bunches and for a dimensional effect.

For the finishing touch, I thread a piece of Lace Ribbon, long enough to mark mom’s place in her pages. Here’s a close up and another look at the finished project!
