Cindy has challenged us to use chipboard, either homemade or store bought on our creations this week.
It has been a few years since I have made a Paper Clip Bookmark, and I was inspired to make one for this challenge after seeing one that Beate create a week or two ago. Since the last time I made any we have had lots of fun dies become available.
For my bookmark I used MFT Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse & Stamp Set. I cut all the main pieces using drink coaster chipboard and covered these with designer paper and then assembled my paper clip bookmark. If you haven’t made one of these before you can find a tutorial in the resource section of Splitcoast Stampers.
I also like Beate’s idea of presenting the paper clip bookmark in a display book so I decided to create one for mine. The red scallops around the edge of the back of the box was created using MFT Die-namics Small Scallop Border.
