Bookmark This!!!

Ok so I can't take credit for the original idea because I did get it from the glorious Pinterest.  The idea though was a great one, turning old books into bookmarks.  First I had to hit up the local goodwill -as is -store (a scary place) and dig through the rubble (not kidding) to find some old books worthy of my project.  Once I did I just cut the spine off and decoupaged it onto card stalk the cut it out.  I then used my dads leather punch because well I didn't have a hole punch-I know who doesn't have a hole punch right?  I then used grommets in the hole and added some ribbon and boom done, easy peasy!!!


  1. What did you do with the Jane Eyre? I studied with the artist who did the illustrations and wonder if you still have the engravings?

  2. Love the bookmarks! I'm like SuzieQ and wondering what other fab projects you might have up your sleeve with the book innards?!
