Today Katya is showing us what to do with those small pieces of paper that are lying around.
This is what she says:
“To those of you who like myself love to read but always use just any piece of paper that is lying around as a bookmark- this tutorial is for you.”
What you will need:
- distress ink
- patterned paper
Use some cardstock as a base of our bookmark, mine is the package that was left over from an embossing folder. It measures 17cmX6cm. Also we need to pieces of fleece that measure to be the same size as the base.
Glue all three layers together and lay on the riverce side of our piece of material (mine is a shirt which I ruined in the wash).
Stitch around the book mark, this step has not worked as well as I hoped for me- my sewing machine wasn’t able to stitch though such thickness so I had to do it by hand. One bend needle and two broken needles later I managed to stitch around the bookmark.
Pull some twine though the eyelet and decorate it with beads
and here is the finished bookmark!! Isn’t is pretty?
