|My paint chip stealers!!!!|
So I started on my bookmark project. First job was to round the corners.
I picked out some Stampin Up stamp sets that would fit in the smaller space of the paint sample. I chose the Every Little Bit stamp set.
I used the circle punch and scalloped circle punch to punch out the stamp. I also punched a hole in the top to add ribbon. Now I will stop here and talk about my OLD hole punch. I have a Big Bite which punches holes in two sizes nicely and sets eyelets. But I hate to drag it out. Last week, my husband went to an auction and got a bunch of stuff. In his auction stuff, there was this old hole punch. He stuck it in my car for me! I have to say...it isn't pretty, it shows LOTS of wear. But it works....each and every time I use it. I LOVE this thing! I love thinking of all the projects it was used on!!!! RECYCLE!!!! I have found new life for this hole punch!!!!

While at Lowes, we picked up different types of paint samples. This was another bookmark I made.
I used the Keep Calm Hostess set from Stampin' Up. There are some legal issues going on with the Keep Calm phrase so it isn't available right now. I hope they are able to work out the issues and it can be available once again.
I added a little bling to this one. Not sure if you can see it on the purse too. Maybe good for the tween girls???
Hope you enjoyed this fun project!!!
