Cute Little Tea Cup Bookmark


I made these cute little tea cup bookmarks to put in the goody bags for the travel crop we had this past weekend. These were so much fun to make :)
I started with a piece of Certainly Celery that was cut out with a 4 inch circle die cut, then ran it through an embossing folder. I stamped the tea cup with Versamark and heat embossed with light pink embossing powder, then I fussy cut it out. The "tea bag" is a piece of card stock that I punched out with the tag punch, then wrapped a small piece of a coffee filter around it. I stapled a piece of bakers twine to the tea bag and also to the scalloped oval shape to form the label for the tea bag.

 

When you put the bookmark in your book, you hang the string with the tag outside the book to hold your spot. I had the idea for this bookmark while in the shower one morning. I get a lot of good ideas in the shower for some odd reason. LOL

The Scrapbook Friends & More Crafts travel crop this past weekend in Sevierville, Tennessee was awesome!! I met some awesome women from the group and they were all so talented and oh so funny!! Our members are from all over the country and some from other countries as well, but for the crop, most everyone is on the East coast. We had ladies there from Ohio, Florida, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and of course South Carolina. I started on a canvas piece while there, but haven't finished it yet. I haven't even unpacked everything! Hopefully I can get everything put away and work on crafting this weekend.
That's all from me tonight! Until next time....
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!

I love the bookmark, will use it in my quilling book. I really hate it that you had to drop from being an admin although I certainly understand. Just as long as you are still part of our group :)Thanks again for everything, it is so nice to know you personally now :)
