Fun Bookmarks

While I was laid up for a couple of days with the achies.I just couldn't sit there and do nothing, so I decided to fold a bunch of corner bookmarks to embellish later and give away as little gifts.

Here is my stash after two days of folding off and on.

 I think that there are something like 58 of them.  I have about 10-12 already embellished and the rest are awaiting for when I have a day or two when I can just sit and embellish them.
 Actually, the flatter you can keep the embellishments, the better.  If you plan to send them to someone in the mail, you will probably pay a little extra postage.  I may have to 'rethink' my future embellishments.
 Here are a few that I have 'upside' down....just because I wasn't paying attention when I took the photo.  You can make them as big or as small as you like but I opted for the 6x6 size paper to do my folding.  It just seems to 'fit' on the book page, better.
 I used the Generations pack of paper from Simple Stories.  I love these papers.
For embellishments, I used paper flowers that I had on hand and some pearls for accent.

As you can see in the first photo, I branched out from my "Fall" colors and so will be having to use different embellishments.  This should keep me busy for awhile.

I found the Tutorial here.  She didn't tell you to, but I taped down the side where it's sort of open.  I just thought it would hold up better.

Let me know if you make some, I would love to see them.

Have a God Blessed day!!!

Hugs,
Char
