Mark My Place

Hello and Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is enjoying some time off!

I have some bookmarks to share with you today. I made these as part of the Scripture Bookmark Swap on SCS. This is my first swap and I am excited to see what comes in the mail!
I used a heavy textured card stock for the base of these. I then layered patterned paper. I stamped the florette and the scripture verse on vanilla card stock and layered that. As you can see, I rounded all the corners with a corner punch. As a final touch I added jumbo grommlets with my awesome Big Bite and then added yarn tassels. The back of the bookmark looked pretty rough where the grommlet came through so I punched small circles and made reinforcement tabs where the "teeth" were showing and adhered those. These were fun to make and I hope to make some more in different styles for a craft show I am doing in November.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing my fun. Hope you will come back often and leave comments with your thoughts and opinions. I love hearing and learning from each of you!

Blessings to you,
Vicki

  5. Cute Vicki! I love that verse, it speaks so much of the friendship and close bonds. I am in the middle of a bookmark making frenzy too. I may go back and add an eyelet for my tassel.
