with a quick and easy treat! Not a candy or sweet treat, but a paper treat!! Most of us love to read but hate to lose our place and have to waste time searching for where we left off. Hence, the need for bookmarks! The new XL ribbon slide recently released by DRS is perfect for a such a "treat"!

You could make a whole bunch of these...enough for a book club group, a class, a scout troop, etc...in less than 30 minutes!!

First gather your supplies...



Two ribbon slides, stamped in craft ink and heat embossed with clear powder, 2 giga scallop punches and two squares of black cut slightly larger than the giga punches, approx. 2 feet of ribbon and if desired, a small accessory for the middle of the slide.

Simply run the ends of the ribbon thru the ribbon slides, adhere edges with two sided tape, adhere to giga punch and then adhere the combo to your base (black) punch. I added a black adhesive pearl to the center of the ribbon running through the slide.

Voila!





I hope this easy idea inspires you. I would love to see your bookmark ideas. Feel free to post links in the comment section of this post so that you can inspire others!

Thanks for checking in...
See you soon...

Cathy, this is a great idea! I love bookmarks, but constantly lose them too. Maybe I'd take better care of one like this!!
