I have seen these corner bookmarks on quite a few blogs, Denise Marzec's The Paper Landscaper, in particular. She has posted about seven or eight beauties on her blog, and I finally gave in and decided to try one. You can find a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here.
I kept mine pretty simple, with minimal embellishments, as I wasn't sure how bulky it would be in the book. After trying it in one of my books, it is just fine, so I may go ahead and add a few more gold half pearls to the tree to glitz it up a bit :)
They are really simple and a lot of fun to make. When I showed this one to my daughter (who is an avid reader), she told me she wanted a few for herself. I now have a perfect stocking stuffer for her :)
We had a great Thanksgiving weekend with lots of family time and a great feast cooked by my hubby, the gourmet chef in the family. Turkey soup is made and we have a fridge full of leftovers to keep us going through the week LOL!
Back tomorrow with my Color Dare card. Have a great day :)
