I Know, I Know...

...I should be embarrassed that I'm a librarian and have never made a bookmark! I just always use the little receipts from the library that tell the due date as a bookmark. Then they end up all over my bookstand as I finish the books. In the end, this project was SUPER easy and I think I'll be making a bunch for gifts (we are into birthday party season with all the kids in DS's Kindergarten class. YIKES!)
The prod to get me to make a bookmark was Angel's Day 8 challenge. I had the scrap cardstock, and the papers from We R Memory Keepers White Out collection in my pile from the last few weeks, which only means they were not neatly filed away yet. Since I'm not one to let a scrap go to waste, I used it for the bookmark. I also put a pattern on the reverse side of the bookmark. A neat feature for the reverse might be to add a "Recently Read" list. Or a "To Read" list? Maybe I'll try that next time.

Either way, here it is. Thanks for looking!

Hi Melissa!
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog! I think this bookmark is so cute; and I do the SAME thing---my receipts become my bookmarks! TFS!

I never use a bookmark either! My high school students love getting bookmarks with their books though! Very cute!
