Book Corners.

Another use for your paper scraps. This time I turned my attention to  6 x 6 design paper pads and can't stop making these corner book marks. Really easy to make and also use up more of my white paper scraps for the embellishments.  I read a lot so these are ideal  for keeping my page marked but also when I give the books away to charity I pop one inside for the next reader to use. 

You can get 2 bookmarks per 6" square and the plain insert is a 3" square.  The Butterflies are all from punches but you can use any embellishment  and can make as plain or fancy as you like. 

They also work well for keeping pages of letters together to send. 

The paper here is from a company called Beautiful Writing Sets.Co.Uk and you can find them on Ebay.

This was after just a few days play. I either have a lot of books to read or a lot of letters to write.I could be some time!!

These are terrific for bookmarks. Great use of pattern paper and a wonderful gift to pop in a letter or for someone who reads a lot. It's always nice to get a surprise gift.

Gosh you've been busy - these look really pretty all lined up in a box. Brilliant idea to pop them into books heading for charity shops. Must have a go to see if I can work out the folding to use up some my 6 x 6 paper mountain

Wow, such huge bunch of corner bookmarks! Great idea using scraps to embellish them, and they are also very useful! Anyone would love having one!
So kind of you put them inside the books you give away to the charity! Well done!

Jenny L said...

Hi Mrs A,
what a fantastic idea and a great way to use up 6"x6" papds of paper and snippets of unused card stock.
I bet the person buying the book from a charity shop is so pleased to have a lovely book mark in it.
Sadly I can't read books anymore I just listen to audable ones now.
I have made my butterfly entry but haven't had chance to photograph it yet.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Mrs A., a wonderful way to use up some 6 inch papers, I had to give up physical books due to injury, most of my old books went to the local railway station, for the commuter library, these would make a nice surprise inside some I still have. Thank you for the inspiration. Megan
