Summer Reading.....Who Needs a Bookmark

There are a lot of E-Readers out there. My daughter and husband both use them yet they still like the feel of a good ol' fashioned book. I prefer a book which I can hold and when I'm finished reading it, it's nice to be able to hand it over to a friend to enjoy. Yes, I love technology and all of those wonderful, fun gadgets and software programs but the feel of a paper book is still so nice for me.

While my mom was away visiting her sister I got crafty and made my avid reading friends and family some corner bookmarks. These handy little bookmarks are fast and easy to put together. I personalized two of them for two of my girl friends whom never leave home without a paper or hard back book in their hands.

I plan on making more and taking them to the ladies whom work for my eye doctor. They are so sweet so I'm going to make them some bookmarks and pen charms which will help keep their prize pens identified. It's so funny, they all have pens they love to use and have fussed about losing them so I thought the combination of the two little gifts will bring a smile. It's always nice to receive a treat. I'll try to remember to take a picture of the pen charms before I give them to these nice ladies.

If you would like to make yourself and others some of these quick and easy bookmarks you can download the zipped file which has the .svg, .dxf, and Studio files all in one zipped folder by clicking -----> HERE

Here are some pics of three bookmarks I made. I made a lot more....lol. One has a scalloped edge and the other has a straight edge.

  2. I am with you on this one, Debbie. Difficult to beat a 'proper' book - besides always staring at a screen can't be good for your eyes, especially when we have to do so already when we craft. I am sure a few people will find these useful for holiday reading.
