Botanical Bookplate Bookmark


How's that for alliteration! Hi there! I wish I had more time to play along with my favorite challenges these days, but I couldn't resist one of the Flourishes Release Week Noon-Time Challenges called The Bookworm Challenge! You see, I have a bookworm that lives in my house...her name is Julia and she is my 14 year old daughter!

I was inspired by this bright plaid ribbon so I invented a little sliding bookmark with a tiny little topper! To the left you can see what's under my Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 image. To get the shape I outlined the outside edge of the Tailor-Made Classic Bookplate Template die and cut it out by hand. Then I cut two slits and slid the ribbon behind them.

My image is colored with Copics and I dabbed a little orange Stickles in the centers of my flowers then attached it to the center of my background. I used the die again to cut out both green and white, folded them over and stamped just the outline of the image on top. I added a little gem since it will be sticking out of the top of the book and it doesn't have to be flat.  The image and background can slide up and down on the ribbon!
 

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
