Corner bookmark

Happy Hump Day!! Since I haven't had much creative time....I thought I would try something that I *thought* would be quick & easy!! Turns out, not so much!





I've seen a lot of corner bookmarks floating around lately & really wanted to try one. I found the tutorial that Beate did on SCS HERE & thought "easy peasy". Well if you know me, you know that I am project challenged! If it's not a card, I will have a problem making it. Simple directions...but I really need to learn to measure twice & cut once!! It turned out ok....if you tilt your head a bit because parts are crooked....but I do think you can't do wrong with ANY Magnolia image!!

This is Dreamy Tilda....one of my first Tildas.....& I colored her with Copic markers. I used DCWV Citrus papers, & cut the image out with my Blossom Nesties. Added some Stickles....some ribbon....& some half pearls although I don't know how those will hold up considering this is a bookmark, but the bottom looked bare without them!!




Voila ---- my first bookmark!! The directions really are easy for a regular person to follow. Now that I "get it" I will be making more. I would like to add a bunch of these to my Etsy shop in the next few weeks....the holiday shoppers will be out & about!!





Wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with the back, so I kept it simple. Once it's in a book nobody will see the back anyway!!

Well my mom's surgery is this Friday, finally. Seems like we've waiting a loooong time. She was diagnosed back in July!! I will be so glad when it's over. We have to be at the hospital at 7, & the surgery is supposed to last around 7 hours. Thank goodness for my aunt, who will be joining me for the long wait. Please send good thoughts our way!! I just want it to be over!

I had to toss my first attempt at this last weekend. I really loved it but lo and behold I had glued it all together so you had no place to put it on a page. Gotta try again. Two hours lost on a 20 minute project. I was so happy to hear I am not the only one project challenged!

Hi Michelle, I will say a prayer for your Mom's surgery. This bookmark is so cute. Love the paper colors. Great job with the coloring. I'll have to check into the directions. I make alot of bookmarks. Hugs, Rea

This is absolutely beautiful - the colors are out of this world as well as the design work. Hope all goes well with your Mother.
