Summer Bookmarks!

Hello, hope you all are had a wonderful day! It rained most of the day here, but for me, that's a perfect reason to stay inside and craft. :) I didn't have enough time to make anything extensive today, so instead I made some simple bookmarks using summer-themed paper that has been collecting dust in my craft drawer. I figured it was the perfect time to use it. I also cleaned out and re-organized my craft drawers today, and in the process of doing so I realized I have almost NO patterned paper left, but hundreds of sheets of solid colors! :( I plan on heading straight to Hobby Lobby next week right after I cash my paycheck! :) Anyways, here's the bookmarks I made today; simple and perfect for summer reading. I cut 1.5 in. x 6.5 in. strips of the summer paper and layered them on solid colored cardstock and trimmed the edges using decorative scissors to give them some flair, and then added the chipboard letters. 

Thanks for stopping by!
