Hello Kitty Composition Book & Bookmark

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well. I finally finished my first altered composition book. I used my Cricut Expression to make the shapes and letters. I made this especially for Rosie Mini's challenge: Hello Kitty Birthday Challenge. Here is the link:

Rosie's daughter is turning 19 years old TODAY! Happy Birthday Ruth! She loves H.K. as so does my daughter and myself.
I left space at the top to "personalize with a name"

I used my Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge to alter the composition book and make the tiny bookmark. I now kick myself in the butt for not buying the Hello Kitty Font when I had the chance; I went on eBay to "try" to buy it and ALL and I mean ALL listings were over $100.00 that's crazy! I just used Baby Steps cartridge to create the font this time. I embossed the glasses on the big Kitty and the small Kitty (LOL) to give them that "shiny" look.

Here is a "mini bookmark tutorial:"
With a square about 4 inches or so. Mine was 3&3/4 by 3&3/4
fold in in quarters. Cut the as shown in the pix. You'll have
1 square and 2 triangles that you can toss or keep as scraps.
on one of the triangle flaps I also cut just a sliver because
when I folded it down it created a little bulk. 

Fold in this fashion...

use bone folder if necessary to make the crisp folds

paste your nerdy Hello Kitty.
Finished bookmark

Hope you had fun... now to link up at Rosie's place.

Thanks for visiting.
