How to Make Fabric Flower Bookmark:
Step 1: Place fabric flat on your work surface with the right side up. Arrange some pressed flowers on the fabric and glue in place. Add more decoration to your design with fabric markers. Let the glue dry.
Step 2: Place the flexible vinyl on the fabric, and slowly peel the paper backing about 2 to 3 inches down from the vinyl. Place the sticky side of the vinyl down at one end of the bookmark. Peel the paper backing from the vinyl as you press the vinyl in place on the bookmark. Be sure to keep the edges even.
Step 3: Turn the fabric over to continue pressing the vinyl in place on the back of the bookmark. Once the vinyl is in place, put the paper backing, shiny side down, over the vinyl.
Step 4: Press with an iron for 3 to 4 seconds. Remove the paper and allow to cool. Trim the edges with scissors.
