The inimitable Parabolic Muse, Chris, is hosting a bookmark swap, and I thought I would show you my submissions.
I made them after buying Collage Cards: Mini Books, Slide Mounts, & More, a Design Originals publication by Suzanne McNeill. Do you remember the slide mount craze? I bought a few, but never put them to much use, but found a pretty design for bookmarks from Cindy Pestka.
I used precut bookmarks, but you could easily cut your own from cardstock of the size of your choice. Then I cut a window in them using an X-acto knife, though you could also use a square punch, if you could center it properly.
For the second bookmark, I printed the word "INSPIRE" on vellum and made a cardstock-vellum-cardstock sandwich.
For the first bookmark, I punched a hole and tied on a button with ribbon to the top, and for the second bookmark, I tied on a piece of raffia with buttons tied to the ends.
If you are interested in participating in swaps, check out the "Swaps" tab at the top of my blog for some more information.
