Corner Bookmarks

kudzukweenAugust 6, 2008

I saw (and bought) a bookmark at the dollar store,$ of course...since my daughter just bought me a huge goodie bag of cardstock and decorative papers I knew I could make this myself, and that it would be used and appreciated by my friends and family. The first one in the photo is one I bought(the orange printed one) the rest I made. It didn't take long to figure out a template for them.

Here is a link that might be useful:

forgot to mention what would make it trash to treasure...when I was trying to find a template online, I found out that these are also made from old envelopes, you can re-cycle your junk mail to make some! A rubber stamp could make it very unique :) I wonder why I never saw these before?? LOL

Lovely! I'd never seen them before either. Now maybe my dog ear method of marking my place can be stopped. I hate the long page boomarks they seem to stress the binding after reading the book over a long period of time.

I love these!!! What a great idea!! I'm always losing or bending my rectangular bookmarks! Thanks for the great inspiration--especially since I have a store of scrapbooking paper that would be great for these. :-)
