● Place a cabochon over the location you would like to cut out.
● Use an X-Acto Knife to cut around cabochon.
● NOTE: make certain to put a cutting mat or at the very least – a piece of cardboard – under your map so as not to ruin your surface underneath when you cut!

● Allow to dry.
● Place a bit of Mod Podge where the cabochon will be placed in the bookmark.
● Place cabochon over the Mod Podge and press.
● Allow to dry.
● Line up where you expect to place the bookmark for a gift.
● Write up your sentiment based on a 4″x6″ piece of card stock using word (or other document software).
● Place 4″x6″ card stock in printer and print an appropriate message for the person you are giving the gift to.
● This craft as made up is for a graduation gift. It says: You’re going places …. Never forget where you are from! Congratulations
● The sentiment you choose to use may change based on whether or not it is a trip, a new job, a new home, etc.
● Using a hole punch make two holes the width of base of bookmark.
● Using a piece of string, loop it through the hole in the card stock.
● Place the finished bookmark in the center of the holes.
● Tie the bookmark to the card stock using the threaded string.
● Note: use a corner round punch if so desired.
This really is a cute little reminder of places past and memories future to give to someone. Super easy to do, there are tons of different Bookmark Cabochon Sets to choose from – one will be absolutely perfect to convey the wishes you would like to send.
