A bookmark for Grandma


Today I wanted to share the fun bookmark I made for my Grandma's birthday.  She loves to sew and read so I decided to make her a sewing themed little gift to go with some of her favorite authored books.

First off I used some beautiful dies from La-La Land Crafts.  The February Club Kit was a sewing theme.  So many gorgeous dies and other lovely pretty things came with the kit.  I haven't had a chance to play with everything except the dies and one of the sentiment stamps, but I'll make some time to put all the projects together soon.  Below is a close up on the detailed filigree scissors, and the measuring tape ribbon I used.

I also used a stitched border die from MFT to keep the theme going all the way through.  I found a baby button brad and it worked perfectly on the scissors.  I bet your wondering if the scissors close, well take a look...

They do!  hahaha!  Well I guess as long and you don't tighten the brad too much or glue it down you should be able to open and close them.  So cute!  You also receive a buttons border die and some separate buttons.  As you can see I used them on the side of the bookmark and on the washi cut banner.  That sentiment also comes with the kit.  I sew love this set (pun intended hahaha).

Grandmother really liked it and she said she'll use it as she's reading all the books we sent to her.  I am so happy!!  If you're interested in how the kit club works click HERE.  There are so many options to choose from and you don't have to wait to get them in a year!  So handy and so darn cute!!  Okie dokes, this is as good a time as any to say... Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.  I'll have an Aloha Friday challenge post tomorrow, hope you'll stop by to see what it is and then join our challenge.  Ta-ta for now!!
