Super Scrappy Bookmarks

 Super Scrappy Bookmarks!

All Things Crafty!

I saw these on Kandy’s Keepsake’s website and had to try them myself!  They are super easy, super inexpensive and super adorable. To make matters even more compelling, they’re bookmarks! As you know, I love all things books!

You need some scraps of pretty paper and these little brads and flowers are cute too! You can get them at a craft store or even good old Walmart!scrappy-bookmarks-1

If you’re a scrap-booker, you may have some 1” punches. I’m not so I just cut out shapes. The little bird was easy, I simply googled little paper birds and traced one right on my computer screen!

Cut 2 of the shapes in pretty paper (card stock works well) and 1 shape in plain cardstock. Glue the pretty cardstock onto the plain cardstock using any type of glue. Then if you are using the flowers & brads put one on the center of the glued shapes.

Then glue the top of a large metal paperclip in between the embellished shape and the remaining shape.  Now Kandy said to use Rubber Cement and I tried that. It was fine but I was a little less than satisfied with the security of the paperclip. (I’m sure it was my fault!) So I found my Aleene’s Jewlery & Metal Glue (Which is good to have around!) and added a dab around the paperclip, mashed it together tight and held it for a minute & Wa-Laaaa! It worked!

Add some thin ribbon for whimsy and you have a little prize (Vicky) for your book-club!
