Easy bookmark

While reading my Stampin' Success magazine (a publication for SU demonstrators), I came across instructions to make easy peasy book markers. It's so easy, I whipped this one up in 5 minutes, no kidding! I love the sock monkey, he's just too cute! I thought that this would make a great little addition if you are giving a book for a gift, or if you just want to make a whole bunch of them and bag them up for a gift for a friend who likes to read? Anyhoo, I did a short tutorial for you just in case you wanted to make some! Start off with a 4x4 or 5X5 piece of cardstock or DP. I used chocolate chip CS for my bookmark.
Score the square at 2" then turn and score 2" again
Your piece should now look like this. Can you see the score lines?
Now, cut away 1 of the squares like this:

Put some adhesive on one of the squares (as shown)
Adhere as shown:
This is the finished bookmark! Easy 5 minutes, right??
Here's my bookmark on one of my favorite books! I hope you try this out, it was so much fun to make!
Cardstock: chocolate chip, baseful blue, old olive
stamp: sock monkey
ink: chocolate chip, green copic marker
accessories: scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches, chocolate chip stampin write marker (for dots on the scallops), dimensionals.
Thanks for your visit today and for always leaving me sweet comments. They are appreciated!
