Bookmarks...

Today the only thing I did today was make a few bookmarks...
I actually made five but only four got in this picture.

#5 front
and I forgot to take a scan of the back!

I made these from scraps of paper and the sides of cracker boxes. Number five is a piece of scrapbooking paper that I embellished with pens and paint. It looks much better in real life and even has some sparkle.

It's been rainy and chilly today.
Not the kind of day that inspires me to do art.
I put a chicken in the crock pot and that will be dinner.
Not much happening!

  2. These are great! Love the idea of the enhanced wrapping paper. You must have a paper cutter the edges are so straight!!

  8. Nice bookmarks. I save way too many cracker boxes..cookie boxes, etc. Love that cardboard, I have a stack or two! The painted newspaper looks really great.

    I think it's fun to mass produce bookmarks, tags, ATC's. I should do it more.

    1. I have stacks of cardboard taken from boxes and such...I could make stuff for the next 50 years and probably not use it all!

  10. Love your bookmarks Janet. Do you laminate them?
    These seem like a natural thing for you to create, knowing your love of books and reading.
