For the Love of Books

Friday, September 24, 2010
When I'm not scrapping...I'm probably cooking or watching and playing with the kids or reading books. I always LOVE books and recently I've became a book reviewer. So, there are times when I read 2 or 3 books in a month. With this being said...I always in need of bookmarks.

I like going to Barnes and Nobles or Christian Bookstore and pick really cute bookmarks. However, I always have a problem with those bookmarks.

You know that ribbons/threads that dangle on top...yeah that's the problem. My two curious toddlers love playing with it. They pull the bookmark out of my book page...and then bbaaammm I loose my current reading page. I hate when that happen. So, I have to figure out something crafty to replace the bookmark issue.

I found a video tutorial by Splicoaststampers on making a corner bookmark. It's easy...and super fun.
Oh yeah....problem's solved.

I gave it a try and look....
Here's my corner bookmark,

I used mostly Close To My Heart products on this project. The pattern paper and card stock are from Unforgettable Paper Pack collection. The flower and the word 'dream' are from Aspiration Stamp Set. I embossed the word. Also, since I don't own lots of border punches...I used a scallop punch and added pearls to make it look prettier. 

Anyway, this how it looks on my book page,

LOVE it!!!! So, what do you think??

I'm thinking about hosting a swap on this corner bookmark. Can't have enough bookmark in one household....:D

Check back my blog again soon....and I hope you all join the swap fun.
Have a great weekend!!
