This month, Sasha has challenged us to each make a beautiful bookmark.
I have always wanted to try making a corner bookmark but, have never gotten around to it so, I used this tutorial by the fabulous Beate Johns of splitcoaststampers.com. I always love Beate's beautiful work and she has such a talent to make wonderful tutorials. This one is was NO exception and she made it super simple for me!
My dad is a very avid reader but, also very passionate about fishing...since he reads more than anyone else I know, I knew I had to make my first bookmark for him. I also thought making a masculine bookmark might be something different from all of the gorgeous bookmarks my teammates have made.
Here is what I created:
I used the Kids Play stamp set from Flourishes, stamping it in dark grey ink. I cut it out using Spellbinders circles, sponged the image, and matted it with gold glitter paper to add a little flair. The sentiment, from Tiny Flowers and Tags, was stamped on the tag and attached with a little baker's twine and added a button for embellishment. Easy peas-y!
Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoyed your stop in Vancouver, Canada...your next stop on the tour is...
