How to make a bookmark - easy project!

Why am I talking about summer already? Well, the kiddos get out of school in just a few weeks and I'm already looking forward to the many books I'll get to read while at the park, beach and pool. The bookmark above is one I made a few weeks ago and is one of my favorites. Here's another look at it so that you can get a better idea of how it functions.

The flower portion was made with 3 layers of Summer Sun cardstock and our 5 Petal Punch. I added some interest to the flower dabbing on color with Stampin' Pastels. Although you can't see it in these photos, there are magnets attached to the back of both the circle (punched out with a 1 3/8" circle punch) and the flower. Two strips of 1/4" Narrow White Grosgrain attach the pieces and let them hang over the page. The magnets will cling to each other and hold onto your page - keeping your place for you! It was a quick and easy project to put together, but I know I'm going to love using it - I won't lose my place every time I have to get up and remind the kids that there's "NO running around the pool!".

Thank you for stopping by to check out today's update. Check back tomorrow for a preview of what we'll be making at our Card Class this Friday morning.
