Blue Bookmark

It's not often I make things that are NOT cards... but when I saw this sweet little silhouetted boy from the Beautiful Music digikit, I wanted to put him on a bookmark. Not sure why, but I went with my instinct...

I recoloured the musical background to blue, then layered over the boy stamp and printed it onto vellum. I then die cut the bookmark from the vellum, and another pair from blue cardstock. I stitched it all together, then added blue silk ribbon to finish.
I reckon these would make a cute gift - especially attached to a card or something. You could even add sentiments to them too.
And I'll never lose my place with this yummy silk ribbon sticking out of the top of my book.

Oh, and the book - one of my all time FAVOURITES. :)
Back soon.

what a beautiful bookmark. I went through a bookmark phase, but kind of forgot about them. Thanks for the inspiration, I'm going to make some for my friend who just started a book club.
