Belli Challenge #60 - Bookmarks



Hello friends, its Wednesday, so its Creative Belli Challenge day!!! This week we are taking a new look at Bookmarks!!! The Design Team has some awesome ideas for bookmarks. There are so many different kinds of bookmarks out there that are so easy to create, including mine from above!!!

I am showing you 3 different views above. The first bookmark is what the bookmark looks like when its in use. The 2nd bookmark is a photo of the full bookmark. It has a 1 1/2" flap on top to fold over your page. The 3rd photo is the view from the rear. There are 2 little magnets on the back flap and when you close it over the page, the magnets meet so it stays in place.

If you wanted to make a bookmark like mine, I started with the base cardstock that measures 7 1/2" x 2" piece. I scored the top flap down 1 1/2" down from the top. The Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper is cut 5 7/8" x 1 7/8". The circles were cut with the Mega Scallop Circle punch and the 2" circle punch. The butterfly is cut with the Nesties Butterfly die cut run thru the Cuttlebug machine. I found words that would fit across the bottom. Both are from Stampin Up sets. Cherish comes from Baroque Motifs and Priceless from from Priceless (the name of the set). I made a lacy border for the words using Stampin Up's scallop border punch and the eyelet border punch.

Please stop by the NEW Creative Belli Blog and check out ALL the awesome bookmarks the Design Team has come up with. You will be amazed!!! Then make some time to play along!!!

Thanks for stopping by blog today!!! Make it a great day.
