Fuse Bookmarks Tutorial

Hi Everyone! This is Jennie and a while ago I shared these bookmarks I made with the Fuse It has been pinned a bunch of times so I decided to make a detailed tutorial.

You are going to need: A Fuse Tool, Sequins, page protectors, papers and embellishments. I used the Here Comes the Sun and Oakley Avenue Collection

If you use a 12×12 page protector you can made eight 3×6 pockets for the shaker bookmarks. I have the ornamental Fuse Tool Tips but I honestly hate how sloppy the design looks. Instead I decided to use the standard Fuse Tip and run it on the edges 3 times. Why 3 times? Sometimes the Fuse won’t completely seal the pocket doing it 3 times will prevent lonely sequins or glitter of going rogue. Seal only 3 of the sides, you need the fourth side open to add your shaker awesomeness.

Now the fun starts. Gather your glitter, sequins, shapes and other stuff to add to the shaker. Then seal it. The newest collections have sequins assortments that match the items. Right now there is a sequin sale! Get awesome sequins for 25% OFF! Use the code SPRINGCLEAN! 

To add the paper to your shaker you need a STRONG adhesive otherwise your paper will come off. I’m using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive which is perfect for plastic and heavier embellishments. Apply the adhesive on the whole piece of paper. Cover the lines on the top and bottom. You need 4 pieces of paper for the front, back, top and bottom. In mine I used pieces that measure 3 x 2.5 inches. You need the piece to go over the border of the shaker at least an inch to punch a hole for the twine. These 2 pieces of paper that connect also help keep your bookmark today. For this bookmark I used the Oakley Avenue Collection.

I used the Pink Lemonade Paper and Leaf Love Paper. You could also make this with your scraps.

I used the Here Comes the Sun Die Cuts and the Fun Flair.

I am in love with this mix! These are actually sequins from the Christmas Collections and Summer Vibes.

In my mix I also added leaves from my stash and felt hearts made by me. The “Hello” is from the Orchard Words Die Cuts.

I hope this tutorial was helpful! I really want to enable you to buy some sequins! They are too delicious!
