1. Cut a 7 x 14 cm rectangle from the dark green card and a 6 x 13 cm rectangle from the white card. Round the corners of both rectangles with the rounded corner punch.

Position the large Clear Drops stamp on the acrylic block and ink it up with the light blue ink pad. Stamp it onto the smooth backside of the white rectangle. Repeat with the small Clear Drops stamp. Stamp the Woodies Exlibris stamp with green ink in the open middle area of the large Clear Drops stamp. Leave to dry.

Stick the white rectangle to the dark green rectangle with double-sided tape.

Punch a 6mm circle at the top end of the bookmark. Cut four 20 cm lengths of cotton cord and thread them through the hole. Tie all cords together in a knot and, if necessary, cut the ends to the same length with scissors.

2. Create the turtle using punches according to the instructions in the “Mini Figures with Punches” book. Stick it together using the white craft glue and then stick it to the bookmark with double-sided tape.
