Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013 Blog Hop - Day 8


Here is my next project --- a book mark. Another idea using the tag idea that was shown by Lindsay on The Frugal Crafter blog. I kept the concept simple as I made these for one of my book club group. I needed something that could be made on a whim (I had a 2 day notice to make them), in bulk quantity and flat, very flat to be able to run through my laminator. The other twist to the challenge was you had to use what you have and they all have to look the same. No buying anything! Whew! To make 20 bookmarks under those rules was a challenge in the ribbon/fiber department. I have a LOT of fibers and ribbon, but not 18-20 feet of the same thing…I only had this ribbon. So here it is. Kinda plain looking to me, but as a flat bookmark you can only get so blingy!

On the bookmark I used:  Smeared Ink Stamp Set “Quoth the Raven”; Close to My Heart Black Archival Ink; Stampin UP Pastels; Miscellaneous Cream Cardstock, Orange Ribbon

    Even if i had all of the same thing I can never make anything look exactly the same twice.
