Creative Inspirations Bookmark challenge

Hello ladies and gents,
here I am running VERY LATE with this weeks
Creative Inspirations challenge,
which is to make a bookmark.
The teamies have created some masterpieces,
things you would want to showcase instead of
squishing between book pages,
I kept things simple for functionalities sake...

It's one of those papers that I've had for years that I have not been able to bear the thought of cutting and covering up, so I thought, hmmmmmmmm, this could work!! I'm going to give this to my boy, he is going to feel so special to have a bookmark to put in his If You Take a Mouse to School book just like his big sisters do with their books!!

That paper is imagination project Blue Cardigan Designs and the Kraft paper in Gina K, I used a square doily, folded it down to size, distressed the papers in brushed corduroy, then sewed each panel, then simply adhered them together.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!!
Have you stopped by
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges
and checked out that yummy launch candy yet??
Go on, it's okay, they don't bite!!
