Tutorial created using Abobe Photoshop CS4 with Mac OSX 10.
In this tutorial, I am going to walk you through how to make a printable photo bookmark. In this case, I turned it into a printable birth announcement bookmark, but you could use any occasion or photos!
First, make a rectangle on its own layer in Photoshop.
Then, make a circle with the same circumference as the width of the rectangle.
Merge these two layers together so that it makes a shape like this on one layer:
Next, insert the paper that you want to be the background of your printable photo bookmark. In this case, I used a paper from Vintage Pretties Collection Mini. I like this one because it has the fun corner artwork that frames the corner of the bookmark! Use the shape created on the previous step as a mask on the scrapbook paper.
Next, insert the photograph that you would like to go at the top of your bookmark. Use the circle selection to make a mask around the photo so that it fits into the top section of the bookmark. Add a matching stroke, if you would like.
Next, insert any other text or embellishments you want on your bookmark. In this case, I put the birth announcement text for my daughter.
Finally, I took a craft knife and carefully cut along the bottom half of the photo’s outline, so that the bookmark can slip over the top of the book page.
