Miss Anya Bookmarkers

Michelle here with a few bookmarkers for you.  I hadn't made a bookmark yet in all of the years of my stamping.  Being a book-lover, my preference in a bookmarker is thin and I made two for you today that fit the bill!

This first one is a quick and easy take on a corner marker. 

First step is to cut a corner off of an envelope.   I used no science or measuring...just cut of a hunk and then covered the seamed side with the designer paper as shown.  I used a touch of faux stitching, because, you guessed's flat!

I added some strong tape to the edge of the marker and attached out some elements that I punched out of a coordinating sheet of designer paper.  I put a piece of tape along the back edge where the front panel meets the circles so it smoothly slides onto your page without catching.    I attached Sweet Anya and you have a bookmarker!

For my next one I just did a traditional marker.  I folded a piece of 4 inch wide designer paper in half and closed it with adhesive so you have a twosided pink marker.  I added a small tag/rub-on and Miss Anya from the Miss Anya Collection.  I crowned my marker with a Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif Die and ribbon.  The ribbon sticks out of the book, so it fits my thin marker rule!

Copic Markers used on this project:  B97, B95, B93, E44, E43, E42, E02, E00, R89, R85, R83, YR24, YR23, YG17.  I used some papers from a 6x6 collection from icopic...there are over 140 to choose from!
