Book Bling


So, now that I'm in Amy's Chic Book Club, I decided I needed a little chic bling to mark the pages of my book. No more dog-eared pages with this fancy bookmark!

To store it (after I finish a book and before starting a new one), I also made a little scalloped envelope to store it in...so, together, they look like this:


Totally cool, don't you think?

It was a snap to put together. The rubber stamps are Unity Stamp Company images from their April KOM...The bookmark uses a gigantic paperclip you can pick up from any office supply store. Surprisingly, the wire for the butterfly's antenna was made also using a paperclip - it was a bit fancier paperclip that I just altered a tad (it was a musical note paperclip!). I found them at Staples when I hunting for the large paperclips.

Most of the other products are from Stampin Up! with the exception of the The butterfly design paper...It's K&Company paper - Rhapsody Design series card stock. I love all their robust and distressed colors in the pack!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
