Bookmarks



Pin It
I can never have too many bookmarks laying around...they make great little gifts and I use them myself too! These were made using the newest "Inspired by Knowledge" set that is being released this Tuesday at My Favorite Things!
I pulled out some of my Graphic 45 papers that I have had sitting in my drawer (for quite some time). I believe they are from the "transatlantique" collection.
Here is the first bookmark.....notice the nice sharp shape of the bookmark itself? It was made from the largest of the Fish Flag STAX Die-namics....PERFECT for bookmarks. I stamped the sentiment and the books from the "inspired by knowledge" set and colored up the books with my copic markers.
Here I stamped the globe from the "inspired by knowledge" set and colored it with my copics. I then cut the patterned paper out using 2 sizes of the new CIRCLE STAX set 1 Die-namics. Yes! There are circle STAX now to join the oval STAX from last month...yay!
This last bookmark I used 2 sizes of the Fish Tail STAX Die-namics to create the bookmark and then stamped the sentiment and scroll image from the "inspired by knowledge" set. A little bit of color on the scroll with my copics as well :)

Love your bookmarks! A real page turner of an idea. The papers you used really add to this but I am sure I can manage to come up with something. A simple project idea that you can embelish to your hearts content. I have a good friend who has tons of books and this would be just a fun thing to come up with. Thanks for the idea of the bead too.
