It's all about Bookmarks!

Guess what?
I'm a Unity Endorsed {ippity} chick
Okay, you knew that, right? *smile*

Today, it's ALL about 'bookmarks'!
With Father's Day coming up, 
I made a variety of simple bookmarks to share with you!  
They are so easy that you can whip some up in no time.


The shirt on the left is a magnetic bookmark; 
and the others are 'origami' bookmarks:

The origami bookmarks are so easy and if you'd like to try them, 
take a look at Carolina's tutorial over at SCS by clicking HERE.
Isn't that Fiskars Postage Stamp Punch awesome?  
I double layered it so that it had a hint of a shadow with black cardstock.

The magnetic bookmark is made from 
Spellbinders Labels Three and paper piecing.  
I even put one of the litttle stamped messages on the inside of the bookmark. 
The slim magnets are underneath the 1" punched circles
...these slim magnets by Basic Grey are awesome and strong!

Here's a view of how the thin bookmark looks in action
(you never want too much bulk or it'll ruin your pages...at least that's what I think):

Here's the larger origami bookmark in action...see, it fits perfectly:

Here's a pic of all of the bookmarks in a book...not bulky and they stay put! 

Here are some of the tools that I used:
