Advent Day 2: Design Bookplates

December 2, 2019 All day

Design your own Bookplate!

Today’s Advent TBD is a MAJOR THROWBACK to our very first online Advent Calendar in 2011 [Handmade Holidays: Bookplates for Children] ! The kids were too young to get involved, and we wanted the bookplates to be surprises. So, Blaise sketched bookplates. I scanned them, added text with photo-editing software, and printed them on sticky-backed paper we found at the dollar store.

The cuteness of our 2011 Lunchbox Season Bookplates!

Today, everyone is designing their own bookplate.

Whether they want a design specific to the holidays or a favourite theme is up to them. We’ll either use tablets or sketch-and-scan our images. Then, we’ll print them on a few more sheets of our sticky-backed paper from the dollar store circa 2011. Though Avery labels 6462 printed 90-degrees or portrait-style still work just as well.

Here are photos of our designs…now on to making the bookplates!
