Reading Time......Magnetic Bookmarks....

Making Bookmarks were never so much fun but after we conducted our Bookmark Swap at Swap Central India I have been on a roll...and I have made plenty of samples ...and most of them will make a place as a gift to my friends at Star Plus, Mumbai. They are avid readers and have been my support system during my lonely days in Mumbai where I lived away from family....had they not been there I would not have been able to cope up to the work pressures and the loneliness sometimes that city offers!!!

Enough of emotional blabbering and now for the reveal...hehheh...







These are magnetic bookmarks ...I had bought my first few magnetic bookmarks at Japan and Hong Kong where my brother resides....in the year 2003...and since then I have continued to buy them whenever I pay him a visit....and have been wanting to replicate the idea....my friends at Star Plus so wanted me to try this out but I could not do it then as the magnetic sheets where never available in Mumbai and I was not aware of a whole Crafty blogland who could supply me with the same....but now its there in abundance and am happy I can make them for my friends who have waited for it way too long!!!

The best part being this bookmark is that it will never drop off from your book!!!....Am entering one of these in Incy Wincy Designs-Make a bookmark Challenge.... and Scrapalicioususa- Welcoming Fall Challenge....the one I intend to send is below....


This was my second trial at the "Vintage" style (first one I sent it for the swap...photographs and post soon coming up).....but as you can see the bright and colorful person within me just could not see so much of brown so I added that ting of color with the pastel lilac felt heart!!!

 The tickets have been stamped and cut and layered on dimensional.....the base background has been done by stamping on the PP and the edges are distressed....a vintangy washi tape has been stuck below!!


A Closer view....




Hope you like this .....and below are the close ups/individual shots of the other two bookmarks....


This is  my third attempt at vintage.....I first sprayed a whole lot of Copper Shimmer on the PP...and then stamped the birdcage....the effect was fabulous...as the stamped birdcage picked up the shimmer so well and uniformly that it seems as if the ink was a shimmer based one.......


I have added a fabric tape towards the end with self adhesive backing that I bought from my friend Rachana Patel..


The house image is stamped and colored with Tombow Markers....the clouds and the sun are punched out images...I have also punched the end border.....I was lucky to have that PP from DCWV ...All about me ...it just created the right ambiance with that sky and grass effect!!!

Two of the clouds are popped up on dimensional ....along with the house image....


Hope you liked my creation!!! Do leave your feedback and comments ....

Awesome books marks :) Though I have made lots of them in the past, never tried the magnetic ones. I guess I will now. Thanks for the inspiration!
