I wanted to make a bookmark someday but I always lose any bookmark, because an ordinary bookmark is easy to fall out of.
However, I finally have an idea that uses elastic strings to keep it with the book.
I made these three different designed bookmark cards using a variety of dies and stamp sets.
I think the bookmark’s elastic should be long enough to hold the books, so I match the slimline card with it.
1. Sketched Florals & Frames Die Bookmark Card
I used the Sketched Florals & Frames Die from Spellbinder.
This die set is one of the small die clubs of the month last year. But I was too busy to make Christmas cards.
Finally, I had a chance to use this die set and I love the result.
You can see how nice look of the bookmark on the book.
I want to make a bookmark for my cookbook. Because it is hard to keep books open.
I didn’t want to empty the sad-looking card after the bookmark was removed. So I added some of the flowers to the card.
I think this card and bookmarks idea would be a very unique gift idea for many card-makers.

2. Sweet Blooms Border Bookmark Card
I tried to make a bookmark card using the Sweet Blooms Border Hot foil plate.
You can see how perfect look of this bookmark with the book.
3. Floral Panels- Peony Die Bookmark Card
Some of you have already seen this mother of pearls (Using the holographic paper) design of the card before. I applied the same style of design to this bookmark card.
This card is much easier for beginners because no coloring is involved.

Is it beautiful?
I used leftover black elastic from face mask making. I had so much hard time getting any elastic two years ago to make a face mask. I couldn’t believe it it was two years ago already and hope we don’t have to wear a face mask in public anymore.
I made a Thank you card, Birthday, and friendship card using the same bookmark idea.
You can make any occasions card using the same style too.
I need to make a bookmark for my cookbook, so I need to find the matching themed stamp set or die for it.
Thank you for stopping by!
