This above piece is a beautiful book mark! So, after the card is thrown away, the recipient can keep this little goody.
Here is a card I made at the Shoebox Swap. This was Jeri's! I LOVE IT. Jeri designed it, and had all the pieces cut out, so all I had to do was stamp, do the die cut, and assemble.
Here is Jeri's blog:
The bookmark piece is 8 1/2 x 1 1/2. Stick a magnet on the LH side and the RH side (on the inside of the 8 1/2 x 1 1/2 piece). Score in the middle. Attach flower and cardstock on the outside.
On the purple piece of the card (the square piece that is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4) MAKE SURE you don't glue down the LH & RH side. Just adhere the top and bottom. Otherwise, you won't be able to slide the bookmark in to that panel.
If you are wondering how the corners were punched out...these are done with the Scallop Border punch. Just stick your corner in diagonally and punch. OK - hard to explain...I guess I should do a tutorial on this one of these days.
