Commissioned Bookmark


I was asked to make a bookmark from one of my customers.  This is the first for me.  He said that it HAD to be Art Deco and left the rest to me.  I have made numerous bookmarks but never been totally happy with any that I've laminated.  I recently saw someone on Create and Craft making a tent style bookmark and I thought this would be perfect.  I used my My Craft Studio Deco Follies CD and decided I wouldn't just decorate two sides, I'd do all four so the recipient could change which way round she wants it each time she uses it.  I have used plenty of layers so that you know there is a bookmark left in the book and no chance of it going back in a book to the library!!  The bookmark has peel-offs and gems to accent areas.  I need some therapy as I used one of my beloved tassels on it to finish it off.

I am entering this bookmark into the following challenges:

The Character Cafe - Anything but a card
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Make a bookmark
Cute Card Thursday - Dimension.
