Quick corner bookmark


I've made quite a few of these little bookmarks lately as they are so quick and easy. This one uses the beautiful Tonic Studios Butterfly border punch and my Honeysuckle digi image from A Passion for Stamps.



1. Cut a square with sides measuring 8.5cm , marking the centre of 3 sides.  Fold  the top corners into the centre .
Punch the bottom with the border punch.
2. Cut a triangle to fit the back of the bookmark .
3. Attach to cover the join.
4. Draw around the front part of the bookmark and cut out a piece of card to cover . Emboss this and attach to the front.

5. Print and colour digi image, cut out and attach to the embossing.

It's been pouring here for days now and the garden is soaking but here are a few photos I took  in a dry  spell on  Monday. I just love the texture on all the different leaves..






See you soon !

  6. What a great idea Ruth, might need to make a few of these for the girls.

    Weather's the same here, I've almost given up any hope of a proper Summer this year. I kept saying it was saving the sunshine for Wimbledon and the Olympics, but looking at the long range forecast not so sure.
