About half a year ago I made some bookmarks (see the old post here). I made them after I’d found a tutorial which was very simple to use. While making a birthday card for a young lad, I decided to make some matching bookmarks, as he is always happy getting books for Christmas and birthday presents. I decided to try to make the bookmarks from memory, and they turned out surprisingly well as I didn’t use any dimensions or a blank template.
I love the monster type, so I had to make one of those after I finally came across some funky eyes to use in a yarn shop the other day. They are prefect for these bookmarks and I had to choose eyes of different sizes as I think it makes the monster even more fun. This is how the monster looks on its own, and while munching through the pages! I used background with text on for inside the mouth there so there wouldn’t be any doubt about the monsters favourite food!
However, as the eyes make the bookmark a bit big, I decided on making a matching bookmark without the monster look. The photos will show the bookmark on its own, used in an open book and at the end I’ve added a photo of how it looks with the book closed. It doesn’t take up a lot of space and it’s not easy to knock it out of the book.
As I have a fair few books to read for my studies, I decided to make myself a bookmark while at it. Pink, roses and checkered background fits me well. Here you can see pictures of it own its own, both back and front, and on a page. I love these bookmarks as they sit so nicely on the page, and saves me folding the page corners themselves to keep track of what page I’m on!
I still don’t have the proper camera to take the photos with, so the background on the last two photos are particularly awful! Also, I have yet to finish that birthday card. I got too carried away making bookmarks… I’m currently working on some normal square ones as well, so hopefully the card will be finished tomorrow!
