Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark

Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark is what we have for you today. This project is fun and can be done with any age! You can create this bookmark for anyone and for any reason but April is Autism Awareness Month so it is important to celebrate and educate those with Autism making a difference.

Supplies Needed for the Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark

A Creative Journey with Melissa Awareness Ribbon Set #5 See Autism with your Heart Stamp Set

Stamp Block

Adhesive

Black Ink

2 Magnets

Paper to stamp on

Book Mark Paper folded

Red mat paper

Chameleon Pens

To start your Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark, I started with an A2 Card. I cut it in half so I had two bookmarks ready to go!

Take your red piece of mat paper and put adhesive on the back of it.

Adhere your red mat on your Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark.

Place your sentiment on your stamp block. Ink your sentiment and stamp on your red mat paper. Clean off your stamp and return it to your stamp sheet.

Place your image on your stamp block and ink it. Stamp your image on your stamp paper. I always suggest doing a few extra to have on hand.

Take out your BV4 and your YL2 Chameleon Pens.

Color the cape on your image with the YL2 Chameleon Pen.

Color your puzzle piece with the BV4 Chameleon Pen.

Cut out your image. I used my Brother Scan and Cut 2 to cut my image out.

Put adhesive on the back of your image and place it on your Autism Awareness Magnetic Bookmark.

This is what it will look like once it has been done.

Take out both of your magnets.

If your magnets don’t have adhesive, be sure that you place some on the outsides of them. Keeping them together, place the magnets on the one side adhesive side down. This will leave the other side showing adhesive as well.

Place the top of the book mark down firmly ensuring the adhesive for both of the magnets. This is what it will look like once you have opened it. Each side will have the magnet stuck on eithe rside of the paper.

Take your image and place adhesive on the back. Adhere your image to the front of the bookmark.

You did it! You have created a magnetic bookmark!

Take out your circular pop dot. Be sure that it fits in the channel for your slider card. If not, be sure to trim it down and round the edges. This will help with the flow of the slider card.

Place your pop dot on your penny as shown above.

Take your other penny and place it on the top of the penny like a sandwich with the pop dot in between both pennies.

Put adhesive on the back of the colored image. Place the colored image on the back of the penny.

Carefully place one side of the penny on one side of the channel as shown.

Place the other half of the side under the other side of the paper like shown.

Moving your card left to right, watch your image flow across your card. If you are having issues with it. Guide your image back and forth a few times in the channel to ensure it’s ease of movement.
