I suppose this is the smallest paper bookmark I've ever made! hehehe! :) It's so small ...so cute! I was thinking of making more of this to giveaway as gifts for my friends. It's so easy to make and looks so cute too :).
I love this one! Yes! I love the two-tone quilled flower I made that has petals that look like a heart shape. It's several heart shapes combined to make a flower. This bookmark was made for my Mom's friend......it's for her birthday. I was so happy to know that she loved it so much. I didn't put any beads at the ribbon because I love it just the way it is......simple. I lined the edges with gold glitter glue to add that special touch to it. :)
Ok.....this is the first time I'm making a paper bookmark without any beads on it for my bead blog hehehe. Sometimes a certain kind of bookmark does not look good with beads on it. And this particular one in my opinion does not really need one. :) But I did add some sequins on the flower to give it that special touch. I also lined the edges of the bookmark with gold glitter glue.....I love how it shines when it hits the light :).
I am enjoying making quilled flowers and leaves lately and I am experimenting this technique on my paper bookmarks. It gives that 3D look that I love so much. All this time I've been making paper bookmarks using rectangular shapes. So today I want to experiment on other shapes and sizes. And this heart shape is something that I've wanted to do for a long time already. I'm loving this design a lot heheh. :)
Wow...I have not been updating my bead blog for a very long time now. This is all due to my workload at Lin Handmade Greeting Cards .....huhu. I hope to be more active here from now onwards. There are a lot of things to be done here and I need more time to focus on it.
Anyways......lately, I've been so addicted to quilling. I've been applying it on my handmade cards. I've never tried applying it on my paper beaded bookmarks before and today I gave it a try :). I love how it looks!! I tried experimenting it by using the bookmark ....placing it in my book.....and it's great....no problem at all with the 3D flowers and leaves. I love it!
I plan to make more of it soon! I have so many ideas......and as usual....so little time hehehe......but I will give my best this time! Till then! :)
