Read Any Good Books Lately? Need a Handmade Bookmark?

Mama LoveBug loves to read.  I belong to a book club through our local library (Williams County Public Library) called Novel Ideas, which meets once a month.  Do you like to read too??

I decided that it would be a fun project to make bookmarks for the gals in the group, so I crafted some using a darling little digi from Broken Box - she's a Toodle.  This one is a Reading Toodle, which given it's a book club, was appropriate.  I also thought readers who really, really like their books, should be known as
Paper Divas (yes it could also apply to crafters as well).

We also have two guys in the group so I used more masculine digis from GFS.  I had some Core'dinations paper which I embossed and some double-thickness Kraft paper (I heart Kraft) for the base to give each bookmark some depth.  I cut out the digis with two different Spellbinders shapes - oval and fancy oval.  For the GFS digis, I colored them with watercolor pencils and added a glitz or two after fussy cutting them. Here's what I designed:

And here's a close up of the Paper Divas

I hope you like these little characters and maybe you'll make some for the readers in your life...........cyberhugs, Mama LoveBug.
