I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 for this project. It’s a versatile machine that can cut, score and draw to create this bookmark. If you are new to Cricut check out this post and learn how to get started with your machine.
This coloring bookmark doubles as an envelope to hold a few special pencils. Your Cricut does the work, you just have to fold it and add a tie along with the pencils.

- Size the flowers to 6" x 8.5" and set this to draw. Then overlay the envelope and set it to cut.
