Step 6: Pour the resin into the molds.
For the bookmarks pour both colors from opposite ends. 
For the stack of books I opted to make them in a single color, but you can choose to use both colors.

Step 10: Wait for the resin to cure. 

Step 11: When the resin has finished curing, de-mold the pieces from the silicone molds.

When the resin has finished curing, the bookmarks are complete. You can use glue for the last step if you need to speed up the process, however I suggest using resin as I have found it to be a stronger and a longer lasting adhesive.
