Mark your spot with something inky...

That's right! Today's Paper Makeup Stamps challenge was to:





MAKE A BOOKMARK




A few years ago, I had made some book thongs. (My mom loves that term!) Those are great to hold your place in a book; useful and pretty. I had a small piece of shrinky dink. Well, actually (and luckily), I had 2 small pieces. My first attempted bubbled up but I should have left it in the oven longer to flatten out. I tried to heat it up and smash it down. In the end, it just broke in two pieces. So, I pulled out my 2nd sheet and it worked marvelously well.







The fairy hangs down one end, while the bead hangs down the other end. The string going in between, of course. You can upload your creations using PMSMC10 as the keyword.

well what a fun idea, I made jeweled book marks with my grandkiddies during their last visit but this is an even cuter idea.
