It's sometimes a lot easier to make girly bookmarks but I like the look of this Tiddly Inks image so much that I decided to make some boyish ones! The image can be found here in the Tiddly Inks store and I've enlarged them to fit a decent sized bookmark and coloured with Promarkers.

I've used a small Nestie as a template to draw around to create the scalloped edge shape and then I've inked the edges, drawn a line with a Cool Grey 3 Promarker and then dotted a line too. A bit of random inking with my very faded (but trusty) tiny black inkpad before laminating the bookmarks.

The twine stuff at the top is actually thick elasticated cord and its kept in place with a dark silver We R Memory Keepers snap.

So there you have it! Hope your Bank Holiday is warmer than it is here - windy, cold and heavy showers - all the better to be indoors and crafting!!
