Got bookmarks?

The Housewives of Vera Lane are whimsical and quirky to say the least.  I thought they would make fantastic bookmarks.  These mini collages are fast and satisfying to make, and a useful departure from ATCs.  So make some with me!

I arranged and printed the gals on white cardstock.  They are colored with Copics , a couple are paper pieced.  I applied old book pages and scrap paper to cardstock measured to 2.5 x 6 and 2.5 x 7 inches.  After collaging my precut cardstock I used mono adhesive tape to attach the digi image in place. Paint pens, Pitt liners, and washi tape complete the tiny compositions.  Cold laminate is applied to the front and back of the bookmark and trimmed.

How fun to make a batch for your next book club!  Tuck one or two in an envelope and mail to an avid book lover.  Punch a hole in the top and use as a long hang tag.

These four gals are available for instant download in my Etsy shop.  I hope you enjoyed this quick craft fix.
