A quick post showing a quick little project

 Happy Monday!
(we can hope can't we?)
I thought I'd show you a quick little project
that you can make using any stamped image
I decided to use an adorable little witch from
Belles 'n Whistles

I had a package of those huge paperclips
just laying in the bottom of one of my drawers
and decided I would actually give it a try
and see how they came out.

So I stamped just the top portion of my
"Little Witch with Broom" 2 times,
and then I colored them in.
This really only took a few minutes to do,
because of not needing to stamp OR color
the entire image.  I actually stamped on scrap papers
so I didn't even have to use a new piece of paper.

Once my images were colored, I used my scalloped circle
nesties to cut her out,
I then cut 2 more matching circles for EACH paperclip.
This would then make my image firm,
and give me a pocket to glue my huge paperclip inside

When I was finished lining things up, inserting the end of the
paperclip, and making sure everything was secure.
I dabbed some Modge Podge over both the front
and back of the scalloped circle. 
Anything that was paper was coated.
I allowed it to dry, and Ta-Daaaaaa
I have a nice sturdy - glossy finished
Little Witch Bookmark
(well actually 2 of them)
Ohhhh, pardon me, did you actually want to SEE them?
Okay Okay - I guess I can show you!

How about that?
Now you have some adorable book marks.
Great to give those spooky little readers in your life.
Maybe a great gift to give to your "Harry Potter" readers,
Or just to give as a Halloween gift maybe with some candies as well.
The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by,
I hope you enjoyed my quick little project.
Oh and by the way, to make BOTH of these the total
time involved was about 30 minutes from start to finish!
