Back 2 School Bookmarks

The grandkids are starting back to school on Thursday so I thought it would be nice to make bookmarks for the whole school. Our granddaughter will be in preschool and our grandson will be in 1st grade. They are going to a Christian elementary school and there are less than 40 kids in the whole school. (I love-love-LOVE that fact!!)

Bryce went there for preschool but then went to public school for kindergarten. He is a bit hyper and I think his teacher was not equiped for 20 students so their mom has decided that private Christian school is the best fit for the kids. Hide sight is 20/20 and personally I wish he would have gone to the Christian school for kindergarten also but this overprotective Oma was out voted. :-)
I started out with 60 bookmarks but through trial and error ended up with 44. The laminating process did not work out the way I wanted it to and I ruined a few trying to figure things out. In the end I used clear contact paper and ran it through my laminator and they turned out great.
The cut file is from SVG Cuts "Back to School" collection.
I am trying to finish "Teacher" word books for all the teachers so they can take some memorable pictures this year and fill their books.

I am entering this is the Celebrate the Occasion "Back to School" challenge, Simply Sunday "Treats" challenge and the Creative Cutter Room "Back to School" challenge.
