Dandelion Bookmarks

I've struggled a bit with the Hero Arts Dandelion Frame stamp. I made a card with it a little while ago and after I'd finished I wondered if I would do better if I cut the image into two narrow strips, rather than keeping the image whole. So I tried it out.

As soon as I had my two strips, I immediately thought bookmarks. So I whipped these two quick and easy bookmarks up straight away. I used the SU! 1 3/8" circle and Scalloped Circle punches for the topper, punching the plain circles out of two different patterned papers.

Owen's is the one with the stripey paper topper - I couldn't resist stamping a butterfly on my bookmark!
