We ALWAYS get my father in law a book for his birthday. ALWAYS. He is hard to shop for...anyway.. I thought I'd make him a bookmark to go along with it. It was a simple project and took about 1/2 hour. I made it so there is a place to keep your pen, and slip a notecard if you like to jot notes while you're reading.
But honestly it will be used just for a bookmark, and it's pretty cute. I put his name on the ribbon by using the freezer paper method. I used puffy paint, which I now know is not good. It puffs away fine detail. I LOVE it for other projects, but not small names...and next time I think I'll use interfacing. Other than that I love how it turned out.
