My Sheri Crafts Challenge #092: Back to School!
Browsing the web one day, I stumbled upon this link for monster bookmarks. Though I have no youngsters in my life at the moment, I do have two avid adult readers, so I thought these would be fabulous for them since they both LOVE Halloween. I couldn't resist making them for our current back to school theme @ My Sheri Crafts biweekly challenge !!!
The link to print out the pattern for the monster corner bookmarks is here. It makes assembly simple for even young readers to cut/decorate their own. If you need a rainy day or after-school activity, there are various ideas to embellish the bookmarks at the first link shown above! Or you can make them yourself as a special surprise -- can't you just see the smile on those sweet faces when they unwrap a new book and find this homemade and perhaps even personalized monster bookmark? While searching, I also came across this fun site and just had to make the bookmark/journal wrap from ribbon and elastic on my sewing machine! I really like this for the simple fact that you won't lose it if you just keep it on the front or back cover of your book while reading. It occurred to me that this would make an adorable headband also -- so fun to find an item that could be changed into something else with just a simple size alteration -- LOL! Really looking forward to seeing everyone's back to school projects @ My Sheri Crafts!
