Bee Mine

Welcome to day #7 of my Valentines series!  I have a fun little project to share with you today.  My book club will meet before Valentine's Day so I wanted to make a fun "literary" inspired project to bring with me that night. I have been wanting to make book marks for the ladies, but just haven't done it.

 I was rummaging around looking for things one day and came across this old Stampin' Up! set that includes the library card image. I quickly grabbed it and set it aside for when I made my book marks because I knew it would be perfect.  I used quite a combination of stamp sets to create the collage look, which is one of my favorites!

 I couldn't decide where I liked the bee image so I kept switching it for each card.  I used the date stamp on the "due date" line and those stamps are from the Postage stamp set from PTI. Of course the "due date" is Valentine's day!

I used some decorative tape at the bottom for some extra detail. Each book mark was made using a larger paper clip, buttons, gems and felt. I love when I have everything I need for a project and don't have to make a trip to the store.  Hopefully the ladies will like them!  Thanks for fluttering by!
