Simple, Colorful Bookmarks

I have a need of little token gifts for people...a little something more than just a Christmas card, but nothing that will make them feel obligated to reciprocate at all. Bookmarks seem like a perfect thing to give, and so I made a batch using Peaceful Pinecones from Papertrey.

The colors were based on the baker's twine I have to hand, and I used eyelets and a 1/4" radius corner rounder to finish each off nicely. The design is simple, clean, and easy. If you have a nicely detailed, yet smallish stamp, you could easily duplicate these along any theme you wanted and with any color you wanted.

I wanted to use some baker's twine. Love the stuff but find it somewhat hard to use. These little pieces didn't use up much of my copious stash, but at least I used them.

Go, me!
