Tutorial ~ Corner Bookmark
OK, here's my first tutorial at Susana's store blog. I hope you'll find some inspiration to make a bookmark or two.
I was inspired by my good friend Godelieve's blog: StampingMathilda.
Here are some of the things I've used:
I start by cutting the card stock, 5"x5". Then I mark with a pencil at 2 1/2" on every side on the back of the CS.
Score between two of the marks on two sides like I did here:
Fold at the scored lines. Cut off the other two corners:
Now you got the base of the bookmark:
Now it's time to decorate it the way you like. I cut an extra piece of green CS to cover the folded corners, then I cut patterned paper and CS for layers.
I put some extra embellishments on this one, pearls on Scrapper's Floss.
The image is Sweet Lily by Eat Cake Graphics from Susana's.
Kaisercraft Rhinestones in the corners.
Here's another bookmark that I made earlier for a TIOT challenge, images are by Faerie Song Art Stamps from Susana's.
Check out Suzanne's blog too, she made a super corner bookmark yesterday!
I hope this tutorial was understandable, please feel free to ask any questions, I'll try to answer them as best as I can. :0)
