Here’s Another Way

March 7, 2014 No Comments

If you’ve been following my blog or facebook, you’ll already know that I like to be able to use my tools in a variety of ways.  Thinking outside the box is fun and sometimes I set myself that challenge.  It’s kind of like the driver who test drives a new car and wants to see “what this baby can do.”  Well, that’s me with my tools.

Yesterday or the day before, I mentioned that I love books.  Or, I think I did.  Doesn’t matter it’s a fact.  We’ve  long since run out of bookshelves.  I think of the Dorritos commercial when the guy gets to the end of the bag and the voice says, “Don’t worry, we’ll make more.”  That’s me and books.

Now what does any of this have to do with creating and tools?  Well just as I mentioned how I see new uses in the video in this post, I saw a new way to use the Spiral Flower die this morning.

Bookmark with a book

 

 

I don’t know why, but I suddenly saw it as a bookmark.  We’re always in search of one here and pretty ones are sooo much better than mere scraps of paper.  Don’t you love how this one matches my book?

 

Check the photo below for details and a close up of the bookmark.

 

 

 

 

Spiral Flower bookmark

 

I started with a piece of Summer Starfruit die cut with the Spiral Flower die.  Then I inked “Oh, Happy Day” from Starburst Sayings with Versamark and Island Indigo.  After sprinkling on Clear embossing powder, it was heat set.  Besides being shiny (yeah!) and a little dimensional, it will hold up better to handling.  This layer was cut with the Starburst framelits and then adhered to the Summer Starfruit layer.  Finally, I added some dots of Calypso Coral around the scalloped edge that were punched with the Owl Builder punch.

 

Tip:   In the picture, everything to the right of “Oh” does not have adhesive so that you can slide this over a page in your book.

 

I think you need to create one for the book you’re reading.

For all of the supplies for this project, go to my store and don’t forget about participating in #stampingsunday.
