Reading Time....Corner Bookmarks

As said.....am on a bookmark making roll....I have tried Corner Bookmarks before ...but never been so decorative with it....they were plain origami folded paper to be used as bookmarks ....the best thing about these corner bookmarks are that they dont slip like the normal bookmarks...but yess they are not as sturdy like the magnetic ones for sure. But lets see what I have done...

 Yess....I have a twist to the corner bookmark!!! I have turned the corner bookmark upside down.... the triangle part that everyone else decorates is the back in mine....and the broad square side which is the back for others ....I decided to make it useful....as that was a whole lot of space.....so I cut a few blank pages and two cardstock for front and back covers and punched a few holes and tied them in place with ribbons....and decorated the front cover to make it into a small note book and added it to a base corner bookmark!!!!

 This is how it will hang on a book!!!......

 Can you see the pages ...and make out the note book??? Yeah!!! You can open the ribbons and replace or add pages as per your wishes.....isnt it a lovely idea...I loved it myself....Now a lot many may ask...why a note book??? I have a habit of scribbling during my reads...I mean if I dont know a word...or an issue (when am reading on politics or religion) ..I like to jot it down somewhere and then do some research on it or look up the meaning in the dictionary. So I thought this would be an ideal thingy for other avid readers like me.....hehehhe

A closer view.....

There are two more corner bookmarks that I did ....but not with the same idea....I tried to personalise it....turning it into a small scrapbook page...yess...there's space for a small passport photograph to be fitted in!!! So have a look...

 That brown and red blank spaces that you see ....are the ones where you can add the photographs.....


A closer look at them...
 This is how they will hang at the corner of a book!!

 Coffee is too integral to me....I mean I just love it ...and while reading its a must...so I decided on a coffee themed bookmark to give me company....I am entering this bookmark at the Incy Wincy Designs Make a Bookmark Challenge....


Hope you like what I have done....My efforts are always to challenge myself and think innovative ideas with the same projects so that I can create as much variety as possible even though its an age old done to death project!!!
