Scrapbook Bookmarks

I can NEVER find a bookmark when I need you have that problem? I had so many, but can't find any, so am using junk mail. Won't do I say!!!! I love making bookmarks from scrapbook paper, so easy. For my wedding, I cut out pages from a Colorado travel book, glued on a dried/pressed aspen, and wrote our names and wedding date in gold. They were one of the favors. Cheap and so cute-each was unique!

So tonight I made a bunch of bookmarks (some for a Valentine's Day party) using scrapbook paper. I first glued two coordinating papers back to back with Mod Podge (LOVE this stuff) yesterday, put under some heavy books and let dry. Tonight I used my x-acto knife, ruler, and cutting board to trim. They are 2" wide and as tall as you want them. Then I hole punched, slipped in some ribbon (doubled the ribbon, stuck the loop end through, and threaded the ends through that). I used fray check to seal the ribbon ends.And do you ever wonder what to do with those TINY prints from photo studios, like Walmart?

I like to put them on bookmarks-so cute. I usually "laminate" them with clear contact paper but was too lazy tonight, so just attached photo with double sided tape. Then I write the kids' names and ages and add some detail. They're quick, easy, cheap, and come in handy. You can also look at your adorable kids every time you read......
