A stack of "books" and some wobbly bookmarks

Hi there!  This is MelodyR from A Splash Here and There blog.  Today's my day to post here at the Bugbytes.  Thanks once again Pam for letting me post my project in your blog for your readers.  School is back in full swing for just about everyone here in the US so I made some goody treats for my little nephews and nieces starting their preschool and 1st grade this year.  All the cuts on this project were designed using the Silhouette Studio and cut in my Cameo. 

Here's another look at the "books" upright.

The 3D book box is an image by Lori Whitlock, purchased from the Silhouette Store - it comes with three images to build the sturdy book box.  The blue rectangle scallop and pink oval scallop cuts (seen below) are also by Lori Whitlock.  I sized a rectangle and an oval from the Silhouette Studio to layer on top of the scalloped shapes, then typed the sentiments for the kids I'm giving them to,  "signing" them off with love from my kids Ryan, Mya and Mojo (our one year old cockapoo). The circle label is a print and cut by Sarah Bailey.  

I inserted a strip of ribbon between the two panels (the outside layer and the inside layer) so that I can close up the book box securely after filling them with goodies.

After making the boxes and decorating them individually, I set out to create the bookmarks.  The Disney images were free images I downloaded from free sites, and were originally GIF images.  I used Photoshop Elements to convert them into PNG images, then imported them to Silhouette Studio to size as I please.  Here I created a cut line (shown in red) around the images so my Cameo knows where to cut after I printed the images in my printer.

I then adhered the Disney images to the bookmarks with wobblers.  The bookmarks with the name of my nieces and nephews were done using print and cut (fonts and patterns used were ones already in my library).  For added stability, I used the back of a cereal box as the bottom layer for the bookmarks.

Here's another look at the book boxes all decked out.  Besides the bookmarks I plan to fill the boxes with some edible goodies.

Thanks for looking!  Until next time!
