Bookmarks using Stampin’ Up!’s Butterfly Basics

I recently received a copy of the Book of Morman from Shelli and Sterling Gardner and it contained a handmade bookmark, it got me thinking that with all the electronic media we have these days the good ol’ bookmark really doesn’t have much of a chance!  But we all do have at least one book we could use one in ~ our Stampin’ Up! annual catalog for example!

I always have a little gift for each of my customers and for March…. you guessed it…. they all got a bookmark!

I used a 2 x 8 1/2 strip of Naturals Ivory card (about to retire!) so you can get 5 from a sheet.  Punched out the top using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The bottom corners rounded with the Project Life corner rounder punch.

Book Marks 1

The stamp set is Butterfly Basics, the ink colors were So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Early Expresso (for the greeting) and finally a ‘dash’ of Melon Mambo (because it was on my work table at the time!)  An Itty Bitty butterfly punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper attached with a glue dot then about 4″ of 1/2″ seam binding in various colors from my stash!! (see page 207 of the catalog….. some of these are retiring over the coming weeks)
