Flower Bookmarks



The addiction continues, and this time round I made a few flower bookmarks.  The best part is they are made from scraps in my "to be used later" box.  This is a box I use to put things that don't make it on to a card for whatever reason:  changed my mind, colours were wrong, too big, too small etc., etc.  Figured it was about time I start using some things in the box rather than just adding to it LOL!

It's great fun mixing up the border punches along the bottom.  Next time I won't use the twine because it catches when you are putting the bookmark on and that would drive me nuts (that is the practical side of me speaking).  However, for aesthetics, it works just fine LOL!

Thanks for bearing with me and all these bookmarks!! If you haven't tried on yet, do!  They are very easy to make and the sky is the limit :)

Have a fabulous day!

Hey girl! These both are just darling! I hear ya about the string catching. I guess you could cover the entire back with a large piece of tape! Hugs to you girl!

Tired of your bookmarks?? NEVER!!! I am having so much fun seeing what you are creating with these. You've gotten so much variety with these. The recipients of your current addiction (lol!) will be lucky indeed :)

What a great idea to use up those scraps, and those things that languish in our "to be used later" boxes!

I agree; twine probably would drive me nuts too.

Benzi said...

Very pretty, Marisa! You're really getting to give those punches a workout. I think I would feel the same about the twine catching. Argh!

Kristina said...

LOVE that first bookmark. The colors are so warm. I would want to open that book up just to stare at the bookmark, lol!

Thanks for the congrats! I was so surprised to see my name there! I can't win with a card entry, but I can win a random name draw, lol. Go figure! But I'm super excited for some free Verve!! I loved so many in this winter release, it was hard to limit myself (the win definitely helped out!).

Vickie Z said...

Wonderful Marisa!! Still haven't gotten a chance to try these yet!! Just starting to settle down around here from moving!! Love the way you used the french script on the paper on the first one and then overstamped with that gorgeous Verve flower!!

Marisa, wow! These are amazing normally, but from scraps? Wow! I really do need to make some bookmarks! I was trying to see what you were reading, too! LOL! Great designs!

Marisa,

I had to come back after your comment! I am reading the Outlander series, too! I am only on book 3 since I just started reading it a few months ago. I was told to go slow because there is a major clifthanger and the next is not due out until late 2012. I do read other stuff while I am reading it because it is so intense!

Tammy said...

Perfect idea! I need to use up scraps! My scrap box is overflowing and lately I have challenged myself to work as much as I can out of that box. I am doing pretty good, but sadly it doesn't look like I have made a dent, so that goes to show you how BIG the box was! :-( Thanks for sharing!

TannyP said...

Ohhhh...love that one with the french script! It's so darn pretty =) The swiss dots and silver is a winner, too....great job!
