Paperclip Bookmarks

Here are some bookmarks I've been working on. They're pretty easy, so here's how I do it. Using the cardboard that comes in the back of a new pack of DSP, I punch out whatever shape I'm using. Punch the same shape out of your desired cardstock and Adhere to cardboard. This makes it sturdier. (If using DSP, you can adhere it first, then only punch once.) Punch a smaller shape using the same method. On the back on the smaller punch, stick a square of mounting tape. Stick your Jumbo Paperclip to that, and then stick on your larger shape. There you have a neat little bookmark.

I've been making a bunch of these in different color and paper combos to sell at the craft fair. I figured since it was being held at a local school bookmarks might be a nice little item that would sell well.

Here's one clipped on a book so you can get a better idea. I think they're pretty cute, and I would buy one if I didn't know how to make one!

It's less then 2 weeks to craft fair time, so I'm going to be busy trying to finish up all the ideas I have. I wish I knew what would be good and what wouldn't, and how many to make, etc... But I guess that will come with experience. Plus whatever doesn't sell I can always use as little gifts for later when I need them. That's all I have for now, so I'll see you later!!
