I think it is about time we all had a go at making a bookmark, it can be anything you fancy from.... card, beads, knitted, woven, cross stitched - be as crafty as you like. I have made some and attached them to a card using clips. The greeting isn't stuck to the bookmark but I have put DS pads around the corner to keep it in place.

We have been chatting here about attaching bookmarks to cards:
viewtopic.php?f=54&t=53964

and if you try searching there are ideas elsewhere on the forum

Here are a few from me:

Your creations can be uploaded to the gallery or linked from a hosting site - there is a seperate "Time to Create" section in the gallery.

Enter keyword TTC008 and we'll be able to see the all of the creations here

Oh lovely bookmarks and a great challenge ...I will have to put this on my list of inspiration. :angel:

In the past I made a card with an acetate pocket on the front, it was a way of putting detail in the bookmark but it not being covoered by a pocket if you see what I mean!

No worries - nice to see it - you can do another now :) Like the idea of an acetate pocket. i was going to do them with parchment/tracing paper - but like this idea better.

Ooooh Lovely bookmarks and ideas. I have made a start with some, just waiting for inspiration to hit on how to move forward with them.

It's so long ago I can't remember. I must have done though, because I didn't have a tag die. They are plain because I made a lot. I didn't want anything too complicated.

I am impressed with your freehand cutting, looks like on some of them you have even done a shadow cut. The laminating must of taken time too. They are super :) I love everyones designs and ideas - I would of never have though of adding a bookmark to a card. Stroke of genius :)

Here is my finished card/bookmark. I have used some sponges and alcohol inks to make 'rainbow' type backgrounds for the card/bookmark and then embossed the bookmark as well as the acetate pocket. Thank you Adele for the inspiration of the pocket :) The book mark looks silver but in reality it is not. I have used same papers as the likkle bird on the back of the book mark.
