Hello! I have another fabulous Beveled Windowpane project for you today. My stamp clubs made bookmarks with them this month. Have a look at one of the designs.
They're so simple and so fun! These little gems would be great gifts for teachers or anyone who likes to read. What a fun little addition to a gift of books! Here's a closer look...
I used craft ink (Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White) on Crumb Cake cardstock. I love the way craft ink looks on the Crumb Cake cardstock! I also sponged around the edges of the cardstock with Early Espresso ink (classic).
To assemble the bookmark, you want to do the ribbon first (I used Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain). Feed a long piece through one slot and tie with a piece of Linen Thread to secure it. Then do the same with a short piece through the other slot. On the short piece, I tied a button on with the Line Thread. The Linen Thread loops around the ribbon and then instead of tying it off, I fed the ends through the button holes and then finished it off with a bow! And, just so the ribbon won't fray, I torched it...ok, well not torched, but rather melted with a lighter. But, doesn't torched sound much more dramatic!!! Then you put a glue dot on the ribbon and stick the cardstock to it. Easy peasy!
Here's what it looks like in use.
The March Madness winner from the last post is #6...Congratulations Lacey! Today's prize is a surprise...but it's a big one! Leave a comment telling me what your favorite book is and I will randomly choose a winner from all the comments left. I'll go first...right now I'm reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and I love it (totally hooked and have a hard time putting it down)! I don't really have a favorite book, but I love reading John Grisham, Jodi Picoult and James Patterson.
