The Reveal #1
The Reveal #2
I altered an empty DVD case into an Amazon gift card holder. I give out Amazon gift cards at Christmas to a few people, especially to a couple that registered for their wedding there. Since the theme of the stamp set is book related, I wanted to pair it with Amazon which is still kind of a book store.
First I printed out a sentiment on the spine and the front of the case, plus I added the Amazon smiley logo.
Then, on top of the printed cardstock, I added patterned papers plus the stamped and colored images. Aren't the bookworms so adorable?
I decided to enter this in a sketch challenge going on at Pamela's World of Scrap. This is based on the card sketch below. You can join in the fun here. Entering challenges is a great way to utilize all your sweet stamps.
I saw some cute bookmark ideas on Pinterest and thought that would be a perfect match for this stamp set.
Here is the tutorial I used for the corner bookmark (girl worm). I added some twine so it would extend out of the bottom of the book. Here is a tutorial for the top loading bookmark (boy worm). Both bookmarks are really easy to make and would make a great gift, especially paired with a new book.
Aren't they just too cute when peeking over the top of a closed book? It kind of reminds me of Kilroy was here.
