Bookmarks with Finishing Touches

Today I put the finishing touches to the bookmarks I was playing with on Wednesday. So, these extra bits and pieces were:
  • glue the whole onto 100gsm paper to give some extra weight and to hide the inky mess on the back,
  • cut the bookmarks to size,
  • stamp with DRD string sentiment,
  • use a fancy punch to make holes for the tassels,
  • round the corners,
  • add white tassels.

I think these are a good prototype for bookmarks to put with book-ish gifts, add to cards as an embellishment or just use as a gift tag.

Have a great weekend. We are having rain - hip hip hooray. Everything in the garden is looking green and perky again.

Ros those are gorgeous. Didn't have time to get to WOYWW this week so I'm off now to see how you did the background paper as it is fabulous. Hugs, Jenny x

Oh they are so nice Ros. I love the colours and patterns. Im still an old fashioned gal when it comes to reading and can never find my bookmarks as i have too many books on the go.

It must be something to do with the rain dance you were doing in your garden! Either that or the bracken rhubarb umbrellas wanted to show their mettle..... ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love the white ink on black paper (post below) and the fun idea to use a decorative punch as a hole for the book mark tassel- clever! I see you are a fan of Distress Ink, as am I. I used to moderate/host an Inking group for a scrapbook ning site.
Have a great weekend,
