Quick & Easy: Page Marker

This is just a quick little project that many of you have probably seen before, but I thought it was worth sharing!This is a page marker/bookmark, and it just slips over the corner of a book page to save your place. To make all you need to do is cut a piece of cardstock into a square (I made mine with a 4 x 4" piece of cardstock, but you can customize yours to any size). Score your square to make four equal quarters (on mine I scored at 2" on each side). Snip away one of the quarters with your scissors and use adhesive to secure the two ends together (to form the square). I used my Nesties to make scalloped edges by cutting a full scalloped square out (the one that was one size larger than my finished page marker), and then cut it on the diagonal and attached it to the inside of my marker.

This page marker also fits the Stampin' B challenge this week, which was to use both wet and dry embossing on our projects. The Nestie provided the dry embossing, and after I stamped and cut out the Trendy Trees, I covered the entire images in Versamark and clear embossing powder for the wet embossing portion of the challenge. Aside from the use of Nesties, this project is entirely Stampin' Up! Finished Size is 2 x 2".

Ingredients: Stamps: Stampin' Up! {Trendy Trees, Everyday Flexible Phrases}; Carstock: Stampin' Up! {Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi}; Accessories: Versamark, Clear EP, Ribbon Originals, Dimensionals, Nestabilities.

Lovely bookmark, I've made something similar by snipping the corner off of a coloured envelope and decorating it.

I think I need to make myself something like this - I always end up using whatever comes to hand as a bookmark.

This is gorgeous, and I think the scalloped edge really makes it something extra special!
