Yesterday I featured the wonderful Valentine projects I received from my altered art group. Here's what I made to swap - Bee Mine Bookmarks. They are shaped like a little house and slide onto the corner of a book. I have three pictured here so you can see what they look like on the book corner, from the front when not attached and from the back. They're a lot of fun to make and very simple.
To make these, you start with a 3"x3" square. Make a mark midway on each side (1.5" from the top and bottom). Use a straight edge and bone folder to score between the marks. Fold the corners in to form a peak.
Next, decide what type of decorative triangle you want to attach to the front of the bookmark. Some good choices are a nicely textured paper (like the blue one below), patterned paper, or plain paper on which you stamp. For the Valentine bookmark, I used applied alcohol inks onto glossy paper to create a faux marble look. The instructions for that can be found on Tim Holtz's blog here. The triangle is 2"x2"x3". One you have it cut out, simply adhere it on top of the folded corners.
That's it. Let me know if you make any.
