This weekend was filled with adventure. First, I had a great class with the ladies in Brockport. I always love seeing you. Connor, Kim, Jeremy (Kim's friend) and I went Ice Curling on Saturday. This is something that Connor has always wanted to try. I heard about an open house at the Rochester Curling Club. I don't think you will see any of us in the next Olympics but we had a great time!
We put so much effort into making these beautiful pieces of art, it is a shame they can't enjoy them for a longer period of time. This is why I love making bookmark cards. The recipient of the card can use the enjoy the main image for a long time.
I have made this type of card before, but I just bought a new die to give the bookmark a finished look. The book mark fits into pockets on the card (see second photo). I don't use any glue to hold the bookmark in place.
This is the what the finished card look like. So cute!!

I wrote "HONEY" on the jar with a pen
Tying the Knot: Before you add the ribbon decide if you want to laminate your bookmark. You can get it laminated at Staples. You can write a message on the back of the bookmark with a gel pen. I suggest you do this before you laminate it.
When you are ready to add the ribbon, assemble your bookmark. Punch a hole through both the white and brown card stock. Thread the brown ribbon through the hole. Use the gold thread to tie a bow around the brown ribbon. I never tied a knot in the brown ribbon. I took a small scrap of thread and put it through the heart button. I just tied a knot in the back of the heart. I used a glue dot to glue to the knot in the gold thread bow.
If you have questions let me know. Here is a close up photo of the top of the bookmark.
