Today’s hostess is Mona. She challenged us to create a corner bookmark. I hadn’t made one of those since I wrote the tutorial. With me buying all my books on Kindle now, I don’t usually have books laying around. But…. I do have magazines I can use them for. And since it’s for a magazine, I don’t have to worry about making it not bulky so it doesn’t hurt the book pages. :)

I couldn’t help myself. I had to use the Rose from A Year in Flowers 2 again. I LOVE that image. I stamped it several timed in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. They were colored with Copic Markers (Roses: R00, R01, R02, R05   Leaves: G40, G43, G46), cut out and layered.  A piece of white cardstock was cut with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and embossed with the new Elegance M-Bossibilities folder. The circle was stitched to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Beaded Circle Nestabilities die. The rose layers were adhered slightly to the lower right of the circles.

My bookmark base was created out of a 4″ square of Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was scored and the bottom edge was cut and embossed with the Eyelet Borderabilities die. The edges of a 1 1/4″ x 4″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper patterned paper were sanded, stitched and adhered over the lower part. Seam binding was tied around it. The bow was topped with an  October Afternoon button tied on with Linen Thread.

With the same Linen thread I tied on a small tag, cut and embossed with one of the new Tailor-Made Classic Tag Template die.  The center was lightly sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink before a sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags. I didn’t want the seam binding in the back of the bookmark to get in the way of the magazine pages, so I taped another 1 1/4″ x 4″ strip of the same patterned paper over it on the back.

The image layers were adhered to the right of the bookmark. Baby Bling Rhinestones on the embossed part and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the bookmark.
