Tiny Tags Bookmark

This is a bookmark (based on a design by Lisa Brown) that we didn't quite have time to fit in at the January 2010 Workshops. It's SO SIMPLE to make! You can make tons of them for gifts.

You can make this fancier by adding other embellishments, but for the basic bookmark all you need are ribbon, a tag holder (from HodgePodge Hardware) and matching punch, matching brads, a little cardstock, and some tiny little stamps. For the sample shown, I used:

• Tiny Tags*
(118091 (w - $22.95); 118592 (c) - $16.95; set of 17)

• Very Vanilla card stock (small amount for punch)

• Mellow Moss Stamp 'n Write Marker
• Certainly Celery Stamp 'n Write Marker
• Almost Amethyst

Stampin’ Up! Accessories
• Hodgepodge Hardware - Styled Vanilla
• Designer Label Punch
• 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Certainly Celery
• Paper Piercing Tool
• Crystal Effects

* 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog

Cut two 12" lengths of ribbon; feed through the label so one tail hangs on the back and one on the front; attach with a brad through both thicknesses of ribbon and the hole in the label holder.

Stamp a small design on cardstock and punch out with the label punch that coordinates with the frame. Turn bookmark to the back and run a thin line of Crystal Effects along inside edge of frame. Carefully place cardstock into frame. The edges of the label will overlap the ribbon. To make sure the cardstock doesn't come loose, I ran a second line of Crystal Effects all the way around the edge, including the edges overlapping the ribbon, sealing the seam between the label and the frame/ribbon.

Hope you and your friends enjoy this project!
