Workshop Thank You Gifts

I wanted to thank everyone who supported my workshop so I made bookmarks for all the guests:

I used the 4" jumbo clips from an office supply store and simply made flowers out of 10 scallop circles.  I used the instructions posted onto Stampin' Connection by Carrie Dillard.  All you do is punch the scallop circles out of cardstock (I used Whisper White).  Outline the scallops with a marker color of your choice, then spritz with water and let the color bleed into the cardstock.  After assembling the flower, I spritzed with shimmer mist.  It made them very sparkly and really lovely.  Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of all the bookmarks I made.  It would have been nice.  I made them in different colors to match the Beyond the Garden designer series paper:  Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi.  Then I made little holders for each bookmark.  The base cardstock is 4 1/4" x 2 1/2.  The DSP is 4 x 2 1/4.  I used the word windo punch for an opening and then adhered the paper to the cardstock, then slid the bookmark in.  Very simple & quick.
