Cool Bookmark idea

I got this idea from here. Thank you Mary Jo for sharing this fun project. I love to read and can never have enough bookmarks. Ü I made mine different because I didn't have the scallop punch or the big eyelets. So I cut the flower on blackout option from the Cricut using the George cartridge. I cut 3 from white cardstock at 2.5" and 1 from the patterned paper. Instead of holding it together with an eyelet, I used a jumbo brad by Heidi Swapp. The patterned paper for the large flower is from the Cutie Pie paper kit by SU! Also from SU!, I used the canvas stamp, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip ink and for the little flower under the brown brad I used Big Flowers stamp set.

I am always needing fun quick *craft* ideas for our ladies group at church once a month. I think this will be fun to do at one of the meetings.

Here is a view of the bookmark on a page in a book to show you how it works.


  1. I definitely agree. The ladies at church will adore this sweet idea! Yours is sassy and fun!


  2. Very cute. I am glad you liked the idea. I made a bunch like yours too. It was more fun than the ones in the little card. Very nice.

  3. I loved this idea from Mary Jo too! Love how yours turned out as well!!

  4. This is so gorgeous! I must confess, I craft like crazy, but I'm always sticking bits of newspaper or kleenex in my books (Oh the shame!) These would be perfect in pocket cards too. Thanks for sharing such an inspiring idea.
