Bookworm Bookmarts

Good morning Junkies!  I don't know about you, put I love a good read.  For those that still prefer printed materials over electronic media, I've created a couple of bookmarks.  These are all standard size and embossing figures heavily in their creation.

1)  Cut your bookmark paper to 2-1/8 x 6-1/2
2)  Stamp Le Tour Eiffel on a piece of mixed media paper and emboss with Silver Moon Turquoise embossing powder.
3)  Spray stamped image with Art Anthology Plush and Wild Orchid Colorations.
4)  Trim to 1-7/8 x 6
5)  Stamp one of the sentiments from Bookworms, Set of 6 onto a piece of velum using black Staz-On ink.
6)  Glue your trimmed, stamped image to your piece of bookmark paper, leaving room at the top to punch a hole.
7)  Add a little purple fiber and VOILA!  You have a bookmark

The next bookmark is created in a similar manner:

1)  Cut your bookmark paper to 2-1/8 x 6-1/2
2)  Stamp Books Background onto mixed media paper with Versamark ink and emboss with black embossing powder.
3)  Spray with Art Anthology Granny Smith Colorations.
4)  Trim to 1-7/8 x 6
5)  Stamp your sentiment from Bookworms Set of 6 onto a small piece of yellow card and trim.
6)  Glue everything down, leaving enough room to punch a hole.
7)  Run coordinating fiber though the hole.

That's it!  Two really sturdy bookmarks to use with paperbacks, hardbacks, or magazines.  I had so much fun making these I think I'm going to do a few more.  I have several magazines that could use some good bookmarks.

Until later.
