topic: cute bookmark with parts of re-used card

I love the color purple but STILL I think this bookmark is darling (even if I was the one to create it!) Can you believe that the 3 scalloped circles were punched from the back of the thank you card that had the awkward stacked cups as the front image?

And then Paper Wishes/Hot Off the Press came to the rescue with the terrific silver dazzles (butterfly profile, heart, and words 'create' & 'moments'), the vintage lavendar butterfly brad,and the purple dragonfly brad.

Other supplies & tools are: purple paper, decorative scissors, lavendar ink pad, rounded corner punch, purple sheer and satin ribbons, colored staples, lavendar floral vellum border sticker,ruler, pencil, stapler, glue/mounting adhesive squares, straight-edge scissors and of course manila tag.

Quick summary of step to do this:
1) have tag=hole-punch near top center and use corner punch; then ink edges and along top surface perimeter;
2) measure and decorative cut paper (about 3"x6") and adhere; adhere vellum border sticker along top; insert brad and ribbon through hole-punch; and attach 2 folded ribbon strips using staples at the bottom;
3) adhere recycled image art and punched circles; then insert dragonfly brad to 1 circle and apply dazzles (or stickers of flowers/insects).
