More corner bookmarks

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.

Bookmark – corner

I wanted to make a bookmark to go with a card I made for my other half’s lil cousin who recently broke her arm. If it had been me breaking my arm as a kid I’d have been reading, anyway. Besides, one can never have too many books or bookmarks! Right?

So I went to my mates at Google and wondered if they had any good inspirational bookmarks for me. And boy did I find a good one. I knew the second I saw it that I had found what I was looking for. Wee monsters for munching your pages! They are so adorable! Have a look here for the brilliant tutorial I found!

However, my first attempt didn’t turn out like a proper monster, as I’ve yet to figure out a good way to do the eyes properly. My circle cutter doesn’t make circles small enough. So while I ponder how to do the eyes on the monstermarks, here is my ‘normal’ corner bookmark. This is the front:

Corner bookmark, front.

This is how the back looks:

Corner bookmark, back

Here you can see how it looks on a page:

Corner bookmark, on a page

I love it! It sits really nice on the corner of the page and is not sticking out to get in the way. I’m going to make several for myself.
