This weekend as I looked at my work table it screamed back at me to clean it up. I keep all my scrap papers and little bits of unused images scattered about on several trays. I decided this was a good place to start. I also keep all those thick clothing tags and several cards you get from stores about sales and upcoming local events they tend to stuff your bag with these days.
Starting with these tags as a base for my collage I decided to make some bookmarks. With summer just days around the corner it is always nice to have a few extra for summer reading. I then took my scrap papers and glued them to these tags. I stamped the word read or cut the word read out from some dictionary pages. Added a few images. The ones with holes I added some ribbon or fiber to. Viola! some new bookmarks. The scrap pile is smaller and I have some lovely bookmarks to give away or use for my summer reading.
p.s. I forgot to mention the girls are paper whimsey images.
