In the beginning this bookmark was colored ermm I would say kraft maybe. It wasn't white. So if I put any color on it, that color wouldn't be its original when put on some other color so it has to be white. First step was that I painted it white with some really good water colors. They are really thick and nice. After that I painted it with burgundy color.Mixture of red and purple. Then I made swirls just for a background image.After that I drew a heart on a scrap peice of paper. Put some glue on it and gliterred it red and pruple. Cut it and put it up on my bookmark.After that i cut a piece of cardstock in soft pink. Wrote my message on it. Placed it where I wanted to on the bookmark. Finished it with some pop up butterflies and a maroon ribbon, :) Rounded the edge too
Thanks girls for putting up this amzing challenge had alot of fun with it :)
I love reading books and novels so a bookmark is really important and a fancy bookmark just makes the book look more interesting. These can also be used in albums too. I just love what I created and I think i'll be ripping off more cereal boxes to make these :D.Thanks to my nephews they eat alot of cereal.
