Now that school is back in full swing, you may find more books around the house. Text books, literary assignments, or perhaps just a novel you have been trying to complete for months (ooops, that me I’m talking about). With all those books being read, everyone can appreciate a pretty and creative way to “save your place”.
Today’s challenge is just that…a way to create a bookmark that is a little different than the typical long rectangle that we are all familiar with.
Shelli Schmidt, a/k/a mcschmidty sent me a link to a great tutorial on making these cool and unique bookmarks. The tutorial was created by Godelieve a/k/a Stampingmathilda here on SCS and what a fun alternative to the traditional rectangle bookmark. I hope that you will give this project a try and then either use it yourself, or give it to a friend who loves to read.
You can get the dimensions/template for this bookmark HERE.
I have posted my sample, which can be seen HERE. - and HERE and HERE.

I have a few Christian romance books I'm done with... you want me to send them your way? I get 4 new ones in the mail every month and they've been piling up since I wasn't able to concentrate with my illness.
I've seen the triangle piece as a bookmark... even made some for convention a couple years back. These look MUCH EASIER to create! Thanks gals for the instructions as well as the inspiration. Can't wait to give it a go!
We did a similar bookmark for the Sept. 2007 VSN, but thanks for another cute challenge, Lynne - can never make too many of these fast and simple bookmarks for little gifts. I hope you don't mind, but I used the tutorial found here: http://stampdetails.blogspot.com/200...-bookmark.html It was the one we used for VSN and for some reason, I found it easier - just call me dense! Anywho, here's my

How neat looking. I'm an avid reader with several books on the go at any time. I usually manage without bookmarks, though, and at the moment I have an oversupply of origami ones from DH with little folded cranes on them - but I'll still give this a go, LOL.
KAREN Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13
