Little Women Bookmark and Gift Envelope
By Katelyn Grosart
“ Hey G45 Fans! With the release of Little Women in January, my head has been spinning with different ways to use it. With the Little Women paper in hand, I set off and created my Little Women Bookmark and Matching Gift Envelope using the Little Women collection and a variety of the Staples from the Staples Collection. These pieces will be perfect to give to that special person in your life who loves to read. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Little Women Bookmark and Matching Gift Envelope”.
Tip: Add chipboard, fussy cut images and metal elements to decorate the corner of the tag.
Tip: Cut the Carte Postale from the backside of the 3”x4” Ephemera card.
Tip: Policy envelopes can be used for so many different things. I love to use mine for storage, cards, mini albums and so much more.
Tip: Use the Label Holder to highlight a certain word or image on your project.

“Okay, I have a new favourite collection ever. I love skulls, I love spider webs, and I do love Sherlock Holmes. When I was a little boy I had to read one book for school during Summer holidays, and I chose one of the Sherlock Holmes books. My Grandma and I spent that Summer together and we read 6 books! I dressed up like Sherlock Holmes for the whole Summer and was always saying, "Elementary, my dear Watson" for no reason…LOL
When I saw this collection I thought I should make something for my grandma in memory of that amazing Summer!” ~Nico
