Make a Summer Floral Bookmark using Hibiscus SVG

I always bring paper books to the beach or pool so I don’t have to worry about electronic devices getting damaged by a rogue wave or stolen when I’m not looking. Sometimes I even read in the pool to beat the heat, and I definitely can’t bring an e-reader in there. This summer floral bookmark gives some extra tropical vibes to my vacation reading, and makes me feel fancy as I sit with my umbrella drink near the water.

I also often travel with a few small craft supplies, just in case rain keeps me inside. After all, relaxing with craft supplies is never a bad thing! This year, I brought along a little envelope of paper hibiscus flowers cut from a new design. Sure enough, afternoon thunderstorms gave me an excellent opportunity to make a tropical summer floral bookmark using my hibiscus svg cutouts, perfect for using next to the pool.

Supplies to Make DIY Floral Bookmark

How to Make a Hibiscus Bookmark using Cricut

  1. Download my Hibiscus SVG cutting file, and open in Cricut Design Space. Resize layers as desired. I used 1.5″ flowers, 1″ pistils, and 1/2″ leaves.
  2. Follow directions in Design Space to cut 4-6 flowers each from pink and orange papers, 8 pistils from yellow paper, and 3 leaves from green paper..

  3. Cut a base bookmark layer from yellow cardstock approximately 6×1.5″ using the background layer from this bookmark cutting file, or a standard paper cutter.
  4. Arrange pink and orange hibiscus flowers on top of base layer as shown in photo, or otherwise as desired. You may have extra flowers, depending on arrangement. Tuck 3 green leaves among flowers to cover exposed base layer spaces. Once you like your arrangement, glue flowers and leaves in place on base layer. Allow to dry.

  5. Arrange pistils on flowers, making sure most of the length overlaps previous layers to provide strength. Glue in place.

    Add yellow pistil accents to hibiscus flowers.

  6. (Optional) Laminate bookmark using laminating folder and machine if desired, to provide strength and protection.

If I had made my summer floral bookmark in my studio, I probably would have laminated it to make it waterproof and protect the small pieces from bending or tearing. But since it was a vacation project, I left it bare and it’s been just fine.

DIY crepe paper flowers

Tropical blooms like this hibiscus flower template in today’s tutorial are always my favorite because of the vibrant colors.

If you have looked around at my crafts here on the blog, you know I am a huge lover of color.

I have spent a lot of time conquering cardstock paper flowers over the last few years and sharing with you all along the way, but now I am venturing into crepe paper. Even though both have their unique looks, like my giant paper hibiscus and giant Hawaiian plumeria, I really love the realistic touch of the crepe paper.

Crepe Hibiscus Flower Video Tutorial

When you are ready to create these beauties, click play to watch the full video tutorial below or continue reading for a quick step-by-step guide!

  1. You will need to cut out the following number of petals: Cut out 5 hibiscus petals, 10-12 center petals, plus leaves to your preference.
  2. With this hibiscus flower template, you can hand-cut with the printable PDF outline files or use the SVG cut files with a cutting machine. Cricut Maker is the only one I know of that works with crepe paper using the rotary blade. Thinking of getting a Cricut but not sure which one is best for your needs? I can help with that here.
  3. To build the hibiscus flowers you will need to start with wrapping the stem with a crepe paper strip the same color as the center of your hibiscus. Be sure to leave about 1-inch at the top as bare wire.
  4. Use the 10-12 center pieces to poke through the top of the wire and create the traditional hibiscus center.
  5. After you distress your hibiscus petals glue all 5 together at a 45 degree angle.
  6. Place your stem with the center in the middle of the petals and close the flower around the stem securing with glue.
  7. Next, wrap your stem in floral tape.
  8. And finally, gently bend out your petals away from the center, so your hisbicus flower looks full bloom.

I closed my eyes so as not to let out a tear. Yur, keep it that way, asked his colleague Seryozha, Right now I will rinse the rag and wash off the soap. The guy again went to the sink and began to rinse the rag under the tap. Returning to me, he began to wipe my ass.

She did an excellent job not strong, because my feelings are concentrated on the feeling of another man's palm on my penis. The sensation was pleasant, and soon I realized with horror that my penis was starting to rise, reacting to the touch of my uncle. Uncle quickly steamed me and removing his hand from his half-grown cock said: - Now, turn over on your stomach.

Of course, he saw that my cock was already almost got up, but said nothing about it. I tried to roll over on my stomach, but the member rested against the canopy.

Off the tube on the go, Dimka in half a second was again behind Rasim. - Bend over. Rasik, bend down a little - spread the buns with your hands.

Now discussing:

Well, I took the money and quietly walked into the corridor, put on my shoes and went out into the street. It was also raining, but now it was just under the state of my soul. I walked past my house in which I used to live, there was a light on and someone was bustling about. There now lived some kind of blog-safe family, like mine before. The memories made me even sadder.
