Butterfly Bookmark

Hello Everyone,
I was at Barnes & Nobles one evening checking out the books that were on sale when I came upon this cool bookmark. They wanted $5.00 for this bookmark so, I slipped it out of it's holder to see what was so expensive. It was just paper and magnets! I thought, "Gee, I could make my own!" So I did. I started out with Baja Breeze cut at 2.5 inches x 8 inches and scored at 4 inches. The Parisian Breeze is cut at 2.25 inches x 3.75 inches I cut two one for front and back. I only stamped on the front. To give the butterfly a little dimension I decided to emboss with clear embossing powder. First I inked the butterfly stamp with Versamark and then into Chocolate Chip, applied Clear EP and heat set. Used the Round Tab punch for the top and used sticky strip to apply for added strength. The magnets I found at Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for stopping by and all the nice comments :-)

Cindy, this is such a beautiful bookmark! Love the brown on blue...the embossing looks great!
I love making bookmarks, but I don't make them very often.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
