Hello Kitty Bookmark

Hello all!  I am a guest designer over at September Ninth today.  Yea yea....I actually made something.  I'm not even going to say "I'm back" because I don't know about that yet.  Anyway, for today's project I used a cut file that Ruthie created from a coloring book page. 

Hello Kitty is quite the popular cat these days.  Actually, now that I think about it that cute white cat was popular back when I was a teen...all those years ago.  Now my pre-teen daughter and her friends swoon over it just like I did in the 90s.  I just hinted at my age there.  Did you catch that? 

Lately my daughter has been reading a lot.  She has nothing else to do while she sits and mourns the loss of her electronic use privileges.  Oh these pre-teen years!!  Since she is reading a ton and probably lost the other bookmarks I made her I decided to use this awesome Hello Kitty file to make her a new bookmark.  Here it is....

It was super easy to make.  I welded the Hello Kitty main body to a rectangle in MTC and sized all the parts at the same time to keep the measurements equal.  The bookmark is about 6" tall and 1.75" wide.

See the little kitty peeking out at you?

I have it on good word that Ruthie will be offering the Hello Kitty file for free.  Head on over to her blog grab it! 




Can I just say that looking at your ADORABLE bookmark is pure bliss?!!!!!!!!!! :) I absolutely love it! What a great idea and your colors and hearts are fab, too (all my favorites)!

Would it be too much trouble to share your file? I am just starting to learn my way around MTC (embarrassed to say that I got my Cameo last Christmas and had bought MTC & SCAL even before that to use with my Cricut) and am pretty clueless! Just not enough hours in the day...

Thank you so much for taking the time to share! :)

Hi Jennifer. I emailed you. I hope you got it!


Thanks for letting me know, Kasi!!! :) My (way too many!) emails often get buried, considering how infrequently I get online (& I can only see so many messages on my phone).
