HamboHoedown 39

Here is my  idea for
with the Newscaster image that we got
in the ongoing challenge at Hambo.
If you play every week, you get a free
image every week.

This time I did not make a card, but a bookmark,
which is easy to make.

This is what you need:
1 strip of paper: 2,75 x 11 inch ( or 7x28 cm)
2 pieces of magnet strip
your image and decorations
a corner punch

instructions for the bookmark:
Fold the long strip of paper in half,
so the bookmark measures
2,75 x 5,5 inch ( 7x14 cm).
Inside the bookmark you add the magnet strips
 at the bottom.This way you can fold the bookmark
over a page in your book and will not fall out,
 because the magnet will
hold the bookmark in its place.

Of cource you can decorate the bookmark
anyway you want. I used a strip of newspaper,
some colored paper, my Hambo image
 (colored with copic markers),
brads and my corner rounder punch.

Hope this inspires you for some neat presents.

Have a creative day!

Hi Hetty.
This is the best bookmark ever! Would you share how to make it? I'm guessing at this: 2" by 8" piece of cardstock folding into 1/2. A magnet on each bottom inside. A 1 3/4" by 4" piece of print paper and then the topper elements. Is that at all close?
