Creating these bookmarks was a breeze with the XTool P2. Here’s how you can make your own:

DIY gift

Step 1: Start by turning on your machine and placing your material in the bed. Then, upload your chosen design into XTool Creative Space. I found a perfect design on Etsy that was just right for this project.

Step 2: This project involves both cutting and scoring. Initially, I stumbled a bit with the order of operations, but the XTool P2 makes it super simple to manage this by changing the settings from Auto Planning to By Layers. This way, you can ensure scoring is done before cutting by dragging and dropping layers into your desired order. A real game-changer! I love to use the Close-View camera to make sure my spacing is as accurate as possible.

Step 3: Next, set your machine’s parameters. Once you’ve got the hang of the best settings for your projects, this step becomes second nature. For Xtool’s Birch Plywood I used 50%, 8 mm/s, 1 pass for scoring and 60%, 9mm/s, 1 pass for cutting.

Step 4: Preview your design to make sure everything looks good.

Step 5: If you’re happy with the preview, hit proceed and watch the XTool P2 work its magic.

Step 6: After the machine finishes, remove your bookmarks from the slats. A quick clean of any debris from your tray keeps your workspace tidy.

Step 7: Assemble your goodie bags by adding the bookmark, colored pencils. I am adding pencils with affirmations for an extra special touch! Find that Tutorial HERE.

I love adding a creative twist to holidays, especially when it involves a project that’s not just cute but also interactive. These bookmarks aren’t just gifts; they’re a fun activity for the kids to color in, making them even more special. It’s always rewarding to hear “Mommy can make it” from my kids, knowing we’re creating something unique and memorable together.
