Since Charlotte, our head librarian, was the hostess of our club yesterday, I thought it was only fitting to create bookmarks as one of our projects yesterday. I made two different versions of the bookmarks.
This version here uses the glorious Springtime Vintage fabric and the Flower Fun Folds Bigz Die. I just cut several layers of flowers out (I think about 5-6 in different sizes) and hot glued away. I layed the first flower down and hot glued the ribbon on TOP of it to hide the end of the ribbon. Next, I just hot glued and layered until I was finished. I topped it off with a large Not Quite Navy button.
Supplies: Flower Fun Folds Bigz Die, Springtime Vintage fabric, Certainly Celery striped grosgrain ribbon, Extra large buttons (retired)
Here is another version of the bookmark. If you are wanting a bookmark that you will always use in the same book - for instance, a Bible or a journal, you can make your flowers the same way with the ribbon. I just added a loop around each side of the hair band that gives the bookmark a bit tighter fit around your book and holds it in place with just a bit of elasticity.
Supplies: Daisy die cut, Flirtatious Designer Fabric, Pretty in Pink satin ribbon, Melon Mambo button (retired), Wisteria Wonder baker's twine
