Fair Project!

I was asked to make a make n take project or a few fairs I demonstrated at! I wanted to come up with something easy and fast as well as something that most people could use. A good friend, Mary, suggested making an over the corner bookmark. It slips over the corner of the page in your book! Everyone really seemed to enjoy making this and it was relatively fast which was great for a fair setting. It was something even the kids could make and use.
I started with a 4X4 inch square of white. I cut the square into two triangles (I cut from corner to corner). Each triangle makes one bookmark (so you get two bookmarks out of the four inch square). I folded the triangle in half and wheeled the bubble pattern over it. I punched out the scalloped circles using my new punch and regal rose cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Priceless stamp set using white craft ink. I was so excited to use my Priceless set! I got it free from Las Vegas Regionals and haven't used it since! I then punched and tied the open corner together with white organdy ribbon. At the fair I had white, blue and pink which worked out great for the kids.
