My Mum loves reading so what better present to make her than a pretty bookmark :D
The metal blank was bouught at my local craft shop but can be found for not a lot of money on the internet.
To embellish it I used pieces of broken jewellery, a few charms, my signature piece - buttons :D and of course some Tim Holtz fragments.
I didn't really understand what fragments were when I first saw them on the internet but they are such a cool little piece of kit when you get playing with them and you get loads!!! :D
I used a couple of pieces from the charm set and adhered them to some double sided paper with glossy accents by coating one side of the fragment, placing on the area I wanted to feature on the paper, and wiggling a little bit to move the glossy accents until it was evenly coated.
When dry I cut around the shape and sanded the edges.
To finish them I stamped them with Prima mini stamps with archival ink in plum - these are amazing stamps for small projects as there are so many small images to choose from.
Or perhaps you could do a cute easter gift instead of eggs - stamped shrink plastic charms would look so cute :D
Or how about putting photos of your loved ones on the fragments to create a lovely keepsake.
