A bookmark

Hi there!

This bookmark was inspired by the lovely bookmarks made by blogging friend Sharon!

I thought it was time to break away from card making !

Before I started my blog, I used to make lots of cards featuring teabag folding, a technique I love.

Now I try ways to incorporate teabag folding as a way of making embellishment, or using just one tile (in a bigger format) in an interesting way!

For my bookmark, I used a square of 15x15 cm. (teabag tiles usually measure between 3 and 5 cm)

This is a basic fold, which I decorated, and since it makes a "pocket" it is ideal to serve as a bookmark.
Here you will find the instructions for this fold!
I just added the eyelets,  ribbon, pin,  flourish, flower and button!

So easy and effective!
