I’m making Ex Libris bookplates using the To The Moon stamp set. In my previous post, I made a card using the same stamp set. This time my goal is to use this stamp set in another practical but fun project – Ex Libris bookplates.

Ex Libris means ‘from the library of”. If you’ve been organising your book case, chances are you’ve also discovered that you’re missing a few books. Could you have lent it and the borrower forgot who to return it to? This is when bookplates come in handy. The best part? They’re easy to make!

First, you need some adhesive, sticker or label sheets. I used an A4 size that I cut into 8 equal parts.

Next, stamp on the sticker sheets but make sure you leave a blank space for writing your name. It will be handy if you have an alphabet stamp set so you can build your own ‘Ex Libris’.

Lastly, if you want to give it as a gift, make a nice packaging for a set of bookplates. Mine is just a magazine page that I folded and embellished with a paper clip attached with a frilly yarn.

Ready to make your own bookplates? Here is the list of materials that I used to make mine:

I hope that you enjoyed this inspiration and that you’ll give it a go. As you can see, the To The Moon stamp set is versatile and can be used beyond card making. The Ex Libris bookplates are great for labelling your books. Make sure you make extra because your family and friends would like some too!
