Bookmarks Wrapped Up

As I was finishing up these bookmarks for my dear friend Mindy - and was already 'burning the midnight oil' - I was inspired to create a holder for the bookmarks, so that when Min gave them to her friend (borrowing here from the art of cooking) the presentation was as nice as the entree. I apologize for the blurry pic of the open folder - cheap digital camera (new on eon the way! woohoo!) but you get the idea. I didn't follow any template, I just measured the widest and tallest bookmarks, then figured out the size of the folds and pockets from there - good thing I have 12" x 12" card stock on hand.

Stamps: SU! Define Your Life (journey stamp) and Sketches (retired)

Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black (can't remember if it was the dye or pigment one! That's what happens when one stamps until 3:30am!!) This is one of the new inks I am trying out with my Copic Markers, got it from

Cardstock: SU! Textured Basic Black, Blush Blossom & Recollections DSP (retired)

Accessories: SU! Slit Punch, Aquapainter, Watercolor Wonder Crayons in Bravo Burgundy, Blush Blossom Eyelets(retired color), Crop-a-dile & Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. ENJOY!
