Giant paperclip bookmarks

I had a very early start today, my youngest Son woke up coughing and feeling sick at 4am and I couldn't get back to sleep after settling him back down again. I decided to put my time to good use and cleaned the Bathroom, watched a recorded Program on Create and Craft where Sheena demonstrated Spellbinder Nesties (am still debating whether to treat myself to some...I think they would be a good investment to add to my collection...I love what she did with the Flowers and the Butterflies are gorgeous...)
I then decided to have a go at making some more bits and pieces for the Christmas Fair. I decided to make the Paperclip bookmarks as I thought they would be a nice quick and easy make.


These were very simple to put together. I stamped some small images. The cupcakes are Kraftin Kimmie, the cup and flower are from Elzybells and the Football is from my stash. I then cut out the images with my nesties, coloured them with Promarkers and embellished with Kanban bling. I cut 2 scalloped circles for each Bookmark and sandwiched the clip between 2 large foam pads and stuck the scalloped circles either side. I then added the stamped image to the front and finished off with Gingham ribbon.

Here is the Bookmark in action! We are off to the Vyne in Basingstoke now to take a look around the National Trust Property then hopefully back for more crafting!
Have a nice Saturday!
