Curling and a Card

Hello friends,

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.
