Long time - no writee! and....Bookmark tutorial

But thanks for stopping by in the meantime! I appreciate your visiting even if I have been out of pocket lately.
Hasn't it been HOT??
I've been staying inside  doing paper crafts - I just can't seem to get the knitting out in this heat. I made this card for Debbie - you know, the only one who reads this. (Hi, Debbie!)
I found an idea for a corner bookmark on Pinterest and decided to make a few myself. After a little tweaking, I came up with a tutorial to share with you.

  First, cut a piece of cardstock to measure 3 x 5 1/2inches.
Mark the center, then make a mark about 1cm below that center mark.



  Using a ruler, draw a line from each corner through the mark you made below the center mark.

 Score these lines.


Fold  the left side on the score lines. Repeat with the right, tucking in the folded part and overlapping the left side. Adhere with your fave adhesive.


Using your trimmer, trim edges flush.

 Decorate to your heart's content!
For this bookmark, I trimmed the darker patterned paper and edged with decorative scissors. I layered it with pink cardstock that I had punched with an edge punch, and my name is in rub-ons.
Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy this little project!
