Challenge 10 already!! The intention for this weeks challenge was to make a bookmark, but with it being such a busy time for us all we've opened the challenge up to anything but a card - so a wallet, altered notebook, bookmark, candle, door hanger .. the possibilities are endless and you get to make a nifty little gift into the bargain.
I started off with a bookmark that grew into a gift card holder from a bookshop so it's a bit of both lol.
I cut two pieces of card with the largest scalloped Nestabilities, scored a line across the top (just under 1/2" from the top) on both the back and front. I printed the quote in Word with white on pink, cut it out with the scalloped nestie and attached it to the reverse of the front circle (see 2nd pic). I inserted 3 eyelets to hold the bookmark/gift card holder together and tied with bits of ribbon. I cut the DP with the largest Nestie cirle and trimmed a piece off the top so it didn't interfere with the fold. The "card" don't look right cos it's one I printed off t'internet (didn't have time to call in to Borders for one tonight and as per I left this till the last minute!!)
I cut another circle out of the DP (same size as the one on the front), trimmed it and attached to the inside of the bookmark. And there you go - Bob's your Uncle, you have a little useful keepsake that also holds the book token gift card.
