Photo bookmark with Purpose



Independence Day Gift
by Tammy Louise
I'm sharing a special book mark with you today!  I bought a pack of these folded book marks with a photo months and months ago and haven't had the opportunity to make one until today.  Here, let me show you what I've done!


This is the original bookmark purchased in a pack of 10



The window pocket was removed prior to embossing with a folder on the top layer only



I taped the window and rubbed it across the top of the distress pad to achieve a line appearance


I used silhouette stars and embossed them onto stock then used an embossing folder, rubbed them on top of a distress pad and sponged the edges


I used Distress Ink, colored, dried and scrunched gauze




This bookmark has the ability to remind you of a family member while their away and bring them closer to your heart while you curl up and read that book!  The front is embossed and distressed, the stars are from silhouette stars from the web and embossed into the stock I cut them from and distressed.  I've color coordinated the hemp and gauze then used 8 or 9 sentiment images from a great Whimsy collection to finish off the inside!  I hope you enjoy it!  Don't forget the star brad, photo insert and coloring of the Bugaboo image!
