Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft. I love to read – always have! I can go through a book or two a week – so I’m always in need of a bookmark. I had some plastic molds that I thought would be the perfect size – and this project turned out better than I could imagine! The tassels I added at the tops were the perfect finishing touch 🙂
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR RESIN BOOKMARKS:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Rectangle molds
- Mold Release and Conditioner
- Metallic/foil confetti
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
Step 1: First, prepare the EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy. This is a multi-step process so don’t start mixing until you are ready to do the whole process from beginning to end! Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin.
Stir for two minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the first cup into a second and mix with a new stir stick for another minute.
Step 2: Once your resin in ready, add in a bit of glitter!
Step 3: Spray molds with Mold Release. Pour into the molds and fill about 1/4 of the way up – just make sure it’s not too thick.
Step 4: Next, you can add in your embellishments! I used metallic confetti for mine.
Step 5: After you’ve allowed enough time for the resin to cure, you can remove from the molds.
Step 6: The last step for creating resin bookmarks is to drill a small hole in the top and tie on a tassel!
I love a project that’s not only cute, but practical too! I’ll use these resin bookmarks all the time and by making several at once I know have a few small gifts I can give out. Easy peasy!
