TSC28: Flip 'n' Fold Challenge

We thought we'd try something different over at The Stampsmith Challenge this month, so we're challenging you to Flip 'n' Fold to create a project of your choice. Use at least one stamp by The Stampsmith and get your name into the draw for a free sheet of rubber from Estelle!

For my project, I decided to create a Corner Bookmark using the Beautiful, Ophelia by The Stampsmith. Ophelia comes in lots of different sizes, that you can find here. I used the mini size, which measures 1 1/4 in. wide x 1 3/4 in. You can find a great little tutorial by Beate on SCS to show you the folds and measurements. Once you have your main bookmark base ready, you can embellish it as you like. I used a fleur-de-lis border punch on the bottom, above it I used part of a Spellbinders Piercerabilities to do the piercing and I free handed the piercing along the top of the ivory layer of the bookmark. Used another scalloped border for underneath the patterned paper and finished it off with some grosgrain ribbon.

Below, is the outside cover of the above book. I like the picture on the cover and thought it went well with my bookmark for a photo. Unfortunately, my French is pretty rusty, so I have no idea what the book is about. I just hope the words on the pages above are nothing I should be embarrassed about! lol :)

I hope you decide to play along in the fun. Please pop on over to The Stampsmith Challenge blog to see what fun folds the other gals on the Design Team came up with.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
