DAY FOUR AND WE ARE GROWING IN UNITY!

Today, for my Growing in Unity project, I made bookmarks for my parents.  I have seen these on numerous different people's blogs and have wanted to try them.  This is the one I made for my dad.  I used a patterned paper by GCD, with kraft paper and cardstock by Paper Studio.  The ribbon is from my craft stash and I used ink by Ranger and Stampin Up.  The stamps are by Unity and the truck image is a Tim Holtz from Stampers Anonymous.  I accented the truck image with Diamond Glaze and also used it as an adhesive to make sure that everything stayed put together.  The buttons on the back are from Wal Mart.

This is the bookmark I made for my mother.  The paper is a scrap from my stash along with some 7 Gypsies paper, and the cardstock is by Paper Studio.  The felt leaves and flouishes are by Queen & Co. and the chipboard flower buttons are by Prima.  I used a Sizzlit die from Stampin Up to cut the base for the quote, the adhered it to some cardstock and then cut it out.  The butterfly is covered with Diamond Glaze and I used it as the adhesive.  For the "girl with wings" on the back I colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils.


I followed this tutorial:  Corner Bookmark Tutorial.  In this one, you start out with a 3 x 7 inch strip of paper instead of a square. 

I hope you enjoyed these bookmarks as much as I enjoyed making them.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity goodness at the end of the week.
