Hello! Nicole here with a variety of bookmarks I created. This was my first time playing with the bookmarks and I had so much fun making them! They were super easy to make! Come see how I used Sublimation Markers to make these beauties. Maybe, you'll be inspired to create your own. These would make perfect gifts for your booklover friends! I am a avid reader and these make me so happy!
What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?
Magic Ink that transfers their beautiful colors from plain copy paper to a polyester product with a heat source. Iron-on-Ink Markers are the way to personalize sublimation, which is specially formulated inks that transfer only when activated with heat.
Materials & Tools:
- Iron-on-Ink Sublimation Markers
- Blank Copy Paper
- Clear Stamps by Studio Forty and Trinity Stamps
- Acrylic Stamp Block
- Sublimation Stamp Pad
- Project Mat
- Protective Paper
- Heat Tape
- Heat Source (Heat Press or Iron)
Step 1: Trace your Bookmark onto a plain piece of copy paper using a pencil. That way you know how much space you have to work with.
Tip: Set your heat press at 400 degrees fahrenheit for 45 seconds before you start working on your bookmarks. That way, the heat press will be hot enough to sublimate your images when you are finished. :)
Step 2: Stamp images within the traced area using the Sublimation Ink Pad and Acrylic Block. Next, color in the images using your Sublimation Markers. It's OK to go outside the lines...that way you do not get any white edges if you are coloring the entire background.*
Step 3: Using heat tape, tape down the bookmarkers (white side faced down) onto the images.
Step 4: Place a piece of Protective Paper at the top and bottom of your bookmarks. Place your "Sublimation Sandwich" inside the heat press for 45 seconds at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 5: Carefully, remove project from heat press using gloves. Then place the bookmarks onto the Project Mat to cool down. Then, remove the paper and heat tape to reveal your vivid designs!
Step 6: Embellish as desired!
