I opted to make 2 different styles of bookmarks for the swap I recently participated in.  The first one is probably my favorite, but that may be because of my love for the tin flower embelishment I used on the tip.  It fits nicely over the corner of your page.




For the second, I was going for a somewhat earthy feel.  I used fiber paper as well as fiber strings as some of the components.  I thought the rub-ons directly on the fiber papers gave a nice effect.




And here they are together:













I look at these and I see two different personalities, if bookmarks can have personalities.  They were very fun to make.  In fact, I think I will make some more!

Book Mark Swap

Today I finished up my bookmarks for a bookmark swap hosted by my friend Missy at Little Messy Missy.  I even remembered to mail them!

I don’t want to spoil the fun when she gets the package, so no full pictures for a couple of days, but here are some teaser sneak-peeks of the 2 book marks.

I’ve observed many, many swaps, but never had the nerve to actually participate in one, so this is my first, and I’m excited!
