I'm still a traditionalist.  I read printed and bound books.  If I traveled more, particularly if I commuted via subway or was a frequent flyer, I could certainly see the value in an e-reader.  The ability to change point size might come in handy some day (soon?) as my eyes age.  For now though, I'm a frugal person who still loves to explore the local library and check out books for free.  I like the feel of a regular hardback book.  So I still need bookmarks.

If you do or would like to make a simple gift, here is a video of the bookmark we made last night at card class.  This will fit in Stampin' Up!'s small open end envelopes for mailing or you can make your own envelope - see last week's video here on the blog.

I think this would make a good teacher's gift or for a young reader as they are about to have a summer free for reading.  That brings back memories.  I loved to read in the summer, taking my time reading just what I wanted.

Watch at YouTube

Thanks for watching!

  1. Pretty and what a good little gift idea to include with a card. I still read the old fashion way too, but thinking about purchasing a book to read on my iPad to see what it's like!

  2. Very cute bookmark! I'm with you and enjoy holding a book, turning the pages. I have a few books on my iPad, but don't read them because I forget they are there! It is handy for traveling, however.

  3. love this bookmark Lisa-it's os colorful-you used some great dsp and card colors as well as ribbon- have been thinking about having our womens group at church make some for an upcoming meeting where we do crafts
