Subway Art Style Bookmarks

I’ve had a lot of questions about the Subway Art Style bookmarks that I made for my children for Christmas.

 

I made mine in Photoshop, but you can easily make them in Word. If you want more fonts than you currently have, do a search for free fonts, and download some new fonts that you like to your computer. Some places I’ve found fonts are Urban Fonts, and DaFont.

I typed each child’s name at the top, and then wrote ten things I love about that child underneath. Be sure to keep the file, in case a child loses his or her bookmark and wants a replacement.

I fit four on a page, and I printed them on a piece of cardstock.

After cutting them out (I used a paper cutter to make it easier, but you can use scissors) I covered them with clear shelf-liner on both sides. I cut around the edges, leaving about 1/8 inch around the edges. You can get a roll of clear-shelf liner for around $5. I first learned this trick in France, so if you’re reading in another country, you should be able to find this as well.

Instead of a bookmark, you could print this and stick it in a photo frame, or print it as a poster.

  1. You’ve used two of the names we’re considering for our fifth (Winter and Ivory) that’s due in December! I guess I’ll have to keep brainstorming ­čśë

  2. It’s not like you can’t use those names! :)A friend of mine liked Wren (our other daugther’s name) but ended up choosing to name her daughter Dove.When we were down to names for this last baby, I also liked Ruby, Poppy, and Peony. Of course, she was a spring baby. But Ivory would also work for a wintertime baby!

  3. Just wanted to make sure you saw that Sam’s Club is having free health screenings. I saw on Southern Savers dot com and Money saving mom, so I figured you would see it, too. This has nothing to do with this post, but didn’t know where else to put this!

  4. Hi Brandy, Could you tell me what font you used for the names on the bookmarks. I don’t seem to have that one and it’s so pretty. I think this is an awesome idea and want to make some for my beautiful daughters.

  5. It is Bickham Script II and Bickham Script Fancy. I looked for it for a long time before I was able to find it. I cannot remember where I finally did find it, but if you find it, please let me know where so that I can tell others!DaFont has a lot of calligraphy fonts that you may like, if you don’t locate that font.
