Belli Challenge #60 Bookmark "Flight"


The Belli challenge for today is bookmarks. I've been seeing these bookmarks around, but never got around to making one. Wish I would have sooner! So much fun! I selected Styled Silver Hodgepodge hardware from SU. The brown and pink ribbon was pretty wide so I had to bring out the Crop-a-dile to make one of the holes bigger on the hardware so the ribbon could go through. I punched a hole in the ribbon on the back and folded up the brad ends into the layer of ribbon. That way the ends of the brad would be concealed. Once that was done I use Crystal Effects to glue the ribbon in down and along the raw edge so it would unravel. Stamp is an Inchie set from Ink-a-dink-a-do. Butterfly charm I found a pack of them at Pat Catan's for .50 cents! I was happy about that! I used a small clip on the other end of the brown ribbon. That was an after thought. At first I was just going to tie a knot, but when I got to thinking about it I thought the clip would be great as now I can clip the bookmark to the page in a book. Pretty smart of me!
