Today's guest is Carol from The Answer is Chocolate. I was immediately drawn to Carol's blog because, well, I firmly believe that the answer is chocolate! Over at The Answer is Chocolate, you'll find beautiful paper projects, jewelry, scrapbooking and lots more.
So grab some chocolate and enjoy the beautiful project that Carol is sharing with us today.
We are avid readers in our house and even though we’ve kept pace with technology and read a lot online and via an eReader, for me, there’s still nothing like an actual book. But what’s a book without a bookmark?
I recently had the opportunity to play with some new products from Plaid. I love Mod Podge and they have a new line of acrylic shapes called Podgeables. I had a couple left over from another project I was working on and they were perfect for my bookmarks.
For this project you will need:
- Ribbon. I used velvet but anything with some body to it.
- Ribbon Clamps. Find these in the jewelry supply section of your favorite craft or bead store. Mine are from Michaels.
- Jump Rings
- Charms, beads, anything small w/ a hole that will fit on a bookmark!
Once you have your clamps on, you can add your embellishments. The Podgeables are acrylic shapes that you can decorate. I used Mod Podge Antique Matte to adhere paper to the backs of mine. Then added beads and charms from my stash.
Thanks again for having me Carolyn!
