Books are always appreciated gifts, also for Christmas. Why don't you make this years holiday reading a bit more personal by adding your handmade bookmarks?
Bookmarks obviously need to stay flat, so pretty papers and stamps are the perfect decorations. This model consists of a back- and a frontside, held toghether by a simple stitch along one of the short edges.
Här ser man själva principen - man sticker in boksidan mellan bokmärkets två lager.
Here you can see how the bookmark is used, just slide the book page in between the two layers of the bookmark.
Tittar du noga så ser du att de utstansade snöflingorna (från en Tim Holtz die) gnistrar precis som sig bör. De har fått ett lager stickles innan de fästes med raksömmen.
Look closely and you will see that the snowflake (from a Tim Holtz die) actually glistens, just as it should. I added some stickles before adhereing it to the bookmark.
