Do you lose your bookmarks? Sometimes my bookmarks are readily found for a year and then *poof!*- they vanish into thin air. Lost bookmarks are replaced with sales receipts or folded post-it notes. Finally a simple and obvious solution came to mind: "You have a lot of scrap paper so make your own bookmarks." (Funny how it took this long to realize I can make my own.) Yesterday I grabbed some scrap Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs papers, Quietfire Design's Kitties Quotes marks, Hearts and Paw Stencil and made some happy bookmarks.
The bookmarks are 2" x 6". This bookmark has a stamped sentiment that made me smile the first time I read it.
The back has inked paws
After my hubby saw the bookmarks I made for myself, he requested a "manly bookmark"
The back had a thin layer of paste used with the same paw stencil
I usually have two books on the go so another kitty book mark was made
The heart stencil was a perfect match
Below are all of the backs.
When all of the bookmarks were completed, a thin layer of Mod Podge was applied.
There are more stamps to the Quietifire Design stamp set:
The stencil has both sprays on it:
I hope you enjoyed the bookmarks! Maybe you will pull your scraps out to make some, too.
Have a happy, crafty day!
