Paper Clip Bookmarks

Since getting my Gypsy, I have been designing a lot of projects. Some of these were cut as test cuts, others are cut with the adjusted file. These are so simple & practical. I love making them & see many more in my future. I will share my files as soon as I get it all figured out. I have been watching MadeByMomo's Videos with the Create A Critter Cart. & she got me to thinking. These "Critters" would make great bookmarks. So that's what started this whole thing.
This one is made using the book & A+ from the Locker Talk Cart. The base circle (2" RDS - yellow "a" & chain linked) is from Mini Monograms.

The apple is from Create A Critter & the scallop square (1.5" RDS - yellow "a" & chain linked) is from Mini Monograms. I re-worked this one to have the square base to be cut @ 2" instead of 1.5. I like the larger size better.

The cats are from Create A Critter. The grey cat is cut @ 1.5" I think. It was too small for me so this one is not saved. To size them, I put all of the layers together on my mat grouped. Then I sized them using the (RDS - yellow "a" w/ chain linked) to 2.5". I then separated all of the pieces on the mat to cut in their colors. I just used a blackout cut for the back of the paperclip.

The dinosaurs are from Create A Critter. The scallop squares are from Mini Monograms cut @ 2" RDS - yellow "a" w/ chain linked.
