Weekend Crafts: More Handmade Bookmarks

The latest swap I joined is to make two handmade bookmarks for my partner from a nice graphic. After looking at my partners profile I saw that she liked to go to Broadway Shows. So I got the great idea to make her a bookmark using the image of a Play Bill and this is what I came up with:

The bookmark came out looking so great. I was so proud of myself. After I was done I went off to check my partners profile to see what else my partner liked to make the second one. Then I noticed on the swap description it said "No Computer Generated Printouts". That meant that the above bookmark was no good. I was back to the drawing board.

After some searching I found two very pretty and colorful birthday cards and I made the following bookmarks:

Bookmark #1

Bookmark #2:
I decide last minute to send all three of them to my partner. I hope she likes them.

Now here is the finished product of the card I showed you on this post:
What do you think? I really liked how the final outcome of the card. I only hope my partner likes it.

My pile of outgoing mail for this week:
It is so much smaller then what I sent out last week.

What do you all think of the bookmarks and the final postcard?

Ciao!! xoxo

The bookmarks are pretty (I really like the Wicked one) and I am super impressed by your snowglobe card. That looks freaking COOL! :)

Woah I love the bookmarks, they make me feel guilty for no longer buying books (I have an e-reader).

By the way this is Anne aka missanne from the 'I'm a Blogger, follow me' swap on swap-bot. Great to be following you!
