Bookmark Mania !

Yes Blogging Friends; I've been creating bookmarks by the dozens for a session I will be presenting with my friend Sue at our up coming 'Papercrafts Expo' on the 20th Jan.

The idea was to use bookmarks as a product to demonstrate how to use a laminater. The process would certainly have shown crafters how to use a laminater but; I got to thinking that our bookmarks would look pretty ordinary.

So....I slept on it for a couple of days and eventually decided that I wanted a decorative touch; and this is what I came up with......

I put border stickers on the blank sections of these little bird pics; before we put them through the laminater...and they came out looking very pretty....

Then; I used lots of fancy knitting yarns and ribbons for ties and also put some corner stickers on the outside of some laminated bookmarks....

I also added brads, flowers and other embellishments to the ties...

The corners all eventually got rounded with a corner punch as well...

mmm.....a girl can never have too many bookmarks...love them all!
