Selfmade bookmark by Anita

Hello and welcome, Anita from the Design Team here today.

It is Sunday and it's raining outside and what is better on a rainy Sunday than reading a good book? I love books.  I am addicted to books, and as I read the book I always think that I should have had a bookmark. Why not make it my self? Self-done is well done 😄


So I made my self a bookmark and now I want to show you how I did this:

I took a manila tag in size #12 and cut it on both sides approx a centimeter




I used my corner punch and rounded the top corners on my tag



then I took my new and awesome Distress Oxides and started colouring my tag:

I started with Broken China, Cracked Pistasio and Fossilised Amber on my craft mat and spritzed with water and "smeared" the tag into the colours


I used the heat gun and dried between all layers


Then Fossilised Amber and Spiced Marmalade



Fired Brick and Faded Jeans



Cracked Pistachio and Spiced Marmalade


and Faded Jeans


Beautiful creamy colours


I used the vintage script stamp and stamped all over my tag with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo


I also used the colour Vintage Photo around the edges with a ink tool


and then Walnut Stain



I used the Round in Circles stamp and stamped on my tag with Distress Oxide in the colour Iced Spruce


I stamped this beautiful flowers from the Textured Flowers stamp set on a paper I previously sprayed with Lindy's sprays in blue and turquoise


I also embossed the flowers before I cut them out


These flowers are so beautiful!
I glued them down on my tag/bookmark.
I attached also a lace ribbon at the top of the bookmark




And voilà - I've got me a bookmark to use in the book I'm reading.







Stamps I've used on this Project is:


Thank you for visiting. I hope you are inspired to make your own bookmark.

Hugs, Anita
