Corner Bookmark Bling!

Just recently I have discovered a most wonderful place just around the corner from my home (who knew!). It is The Goodwill Bookstore.

Apparently this little treasure has been tucked away in my grocery store shopping center and has gone unnoticed by me until now. Anyway, since discovering this awesome place -hardcover books old and new are only $1.99 and softcover books .99 cents-I have been reading up a storm!

With multiple books being read at once, I have been getting very tired of grabbing scraps of paper, receipts, and even...ahem...squares of toilet paper while reading on the potty (you know you do that too!) to mark my place in whatever book I am reading.

With this in mind I decided that I wanted a very pretty bookmark to hold my place but I hate the standard kind that always falls to the ground the second you open the book. Then I found this great tutorial on Youtube that shows you how to make a corner bookmark and so I made the one below for myself. Check out the tutorial and then go make yourself something pretty.

*Remember to pause the music at the bottom before watching the video...enjoy!

  2. Hi Cindy,
    Wow, what a wonderful idea.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. Natalie! I am sooo excited too! I can't wait and I will be watching the mail every day now. I will be sending off your package on Monday after the holiday. The mail service will still be a little crazy until then because of everyone sending last minute packages and I do not want it to get lost in the shuffle so I decided it would be best to send it on the 28th. I think my mail service should take about a week to get to you as well but I can't wait for you to see what I have put together for you!!! :)
