"Eddie" Olliff made some bookmarks for Community Bible Study, and they turned out so cute. She gave me one, and I wanted to share them with you. The really neat thing she came up with -- attached to the bookmark, is the little coin holder with the little seed cross in it. I asked her how she made them, what tape she used -- and she used the SNAIL adhesive, put it down in a cross shape, and then arranged the seeds with her finger on the tape. Then she closed the coin holder so that it stayed closed, stamped the little seed packet on it, and sponged the coin holder. The ladies just loved them! The pictures below are a close up of the coin holder seed cross, then one side of the bookmark with "Bloom where you are planted" - the perfect saying to go with the seed cross, and then the other stamp and saying on the back.
This next picture is a Junior Legal Pad Holder that Wendy Weaver did for end of the year teacher presents -- I believe this one is for a male teacher. She brought it to Wednesday night supper at church to show me and I asked if I could borrow it and take a picture of it. She used the Wood Grain technique we learned in our May stamp club meeting. That made me feel really good to see the technique being used --and so quickly after we learned it. The Junior Legal Stamp Pad holder is really nice! They would make nice Christmas presents too. (Which reminds me -- we need to start thinking Christmas cards and get an early start on them so they will be ready when it is time to mail them!)
