Commissioned Bookmark


Well, this was a first for me.  I was asked to make a substantial bookmark for a customer - ie not flimsy so it would be left going back with books to the library!!  I used a piece of A3 card and folded it in half and then cut it across about 10cm and that was the actual width of the bookmark and it folded over tent-fold over the top of the page.  The images are from the Card Creations Di Kaye Art Deco CD and I used various different images and as the recipient liked dogs I picked a few images with dogs on them.  The papers are all off-cuts from my scrap box.  The embellishments include sentiments from magazine freebies, brads, gems, Papermania glitterations, charm, papers flowers and of course a beloved tassel.

I am entering this bookmark into the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away - Girly n glitter
Cupcake Craft - Books and stories
Spoon Full of Sugar - Animal
Fab n Funky - What 'eva
One Stop Craft - Fashion through the years
Crafts and Me - Gems and sparkle.
