SNIPPETS BOOKMARK

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I am here with my entry into the Snippets Playground challenge which started yesterday.

I was asked to make a 70th Birthday card and box for my daughter in law's Aunt which I shall show at a later date.

So out of the paper left over I decided to make a book mark for her too.

 



Snippets used after cutting off the bookmark part.
 


The white card on the left is snippets left over from makeing the box for the card.

I cut out the bookmark and glued it to the box card then I added some glitter film which has a sticky back to it to the front.

 My friend gave me a sheet of the glitter film I used.

Rounded the corners and sanded the edges to make it smooth.

The cord and tassle were from an old Birthday card which I saved years ago.

Just added a bead and charm to it.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really apprciate every visit and wonderful comment made.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
