A cute Victorian Bookmark

Summer is the perfect time to relax and read a good book so don't forget to have lots of bookmarks on hand to save your place when you are reading.  Becca Feeken has a new Filigree Bookmark/Tag die from her Vintage Elegance collection with Spellbinders and it's really gorgeous.  I used some papers that i had in my stash to create mine using my favorite Robin's Egg blue and black combo.


This one is super easy to make so you can do them up in a afternoon for friends and even your bookclub members.  What a fun surprise to bring each of them a summer bookmark designed for each of them.  Mine is made using black cardstock for the back layer which i cut 2 of and glued them at the top so that it can fit over the pages nicely.  Then i cut a piece of Bo Bunny paper for the top lace piece and another to glue my top to for a base.  Then i glued it to the top black piece and finished it with some pretty silk ribbon and roses from my stash.  And of course i had to add a few rhinestones to make it a little more sparkly.  


Here you can see a closeup of the dies pretty details.  It's amazing how Becca creates such beautiful and intricate dies and i love also how she make other pieces to tie into them.  This die also
has a beautiful pocket that you can create for a card and then give you bookmark. 


And this is just a closeup of my flowers that i added.  I also put just a touch of supefine glitter on them too.  I love having roses that keep forever.

Supplies List:


Bazzill Basics Paper in black
Bo Bunny Paper
1/4 silk ribbon
Flowers
Rhinestones 
Adhesive
