Book 'Em!


I can't tell you how much of an accident this card is! I started trying to make a book mark. Then, I decided, wouldn't it be cool to, instead of just a book mark, make it magnetic so it just hugged the page? Then, after I did that, I thought, "Wow, this little heart would be cute just on the front of the card like this... and... by accident the back part of the magnet stuck to the front and I said, "By George, I think we have a book mark card!" I can see making these in a variety of shapes with all kinds of fun colors and embellishments!

Here's the breakdown of how I made it.

I stacked the hearts from my Heart Nestabilities dies (both scalloped and classic)and embellished them with prima flowers and crystal rhinestones. I used that super tacky tape on the back and attached my ribbon. Then on top of that, I used a circle punch to punch out my magnets from a magnetic sheet. I attached the magnets to my ribbon with the same super tacky tape.


Attach your bookmark to a card front to give as a fun gift....then let it have it's home on the pages of a book later!


Have a great weekend!!!

Thanks for the info on classes. I will try to make it to one of them!! I would really like to make it to the one on the 19th but that is my DH 55th birthday, so I guess I had better spend the time with the "old man"! LOL

I'm going to have to save up my pennies and get those Nestabilties if you keep making all these fantastic cards and projects with them...
