Christmas gift bookmarks

I wanted to add some little last minute Christmas gifts to the pile under the tree but couldn't find anything small that wasn't junky so then I remembered I had seen some corner bookmarks in my travels around blogland that looked useful and kinda cool.   I had a hunt around and found a few tutorials, but none that were exactly what I had in mind, so I made my own template... and I think they actually turned out quite cool!

I cut my shape out with design paper and scored the fold lines for the triangular wings, then I used double sided tape to stick the flaps down to create the corner pocket to go over the page of the book.  I embellished with ribbons, buttons, brads, flowers and digi stamps that I coloured in with my copics.

I am going to enter these in the Mad for Markers Anything Goes challenge.  Hop on over there and have a look at all the other wonderful creations!

Arabella turned up at our house on Christmas Day with these beautiful bookmarks - one for each of us, wrapped up and specially designed. I love mine most with we two special friends pictured.
SUCH a superb idea.
Well done gorgeous girl.
