Do you love to read? I am an avid reader although I seem to spend more time stamping, LOL! I am currently reading "New Moon" and yes, I know I am behind on reading this stupendous series. I always find myself looking for a bookmark, kinda like my glasses - they always find a way to disappear. I found this great tutorial for bookmarks and decided I wanted to try my hand at making some. I know there are many tutorials for making these and I cannot remember where I saw the instructions for this one, but my bookmark is based on a 5" square. I've tried other patterns and this works best for me. Of course, I had to add extras! I decided I wanted a ribbon on mine and I actually use two ribbons. Then I have to add embellies, I love to layer!
My design paper is from Basic Grey and the card stock is from my stash. I always save my scraps and they do come in handy for making these bookmarks. The ribbon is just odds and ends from one of my local craft stores. The branches are from MS and the poinsettia is from the Spellbinders.
Thanks for visiting!
