Scraps to Treasure Blog Hop - Bookmarks

Hi all! Welcome to my first Scraps to Treasure September Bookmarks Swap Hop. If you arrived here from Cicily’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened to “open the book” to my chapter, please start at Chapter 1 which is Paula’s blog at

This month our group of frugally fantastic crafters have made bookmarks for each other. We are excited to share this fun idea with all our readers. If you want to try this and do not have a large group of friends to do a swap like this, you can do it with just 2 or 3 people.

Our wonderful sponsor for this hop is My Creative Time!

Be sure to comment on EACH blog for BOTH days to be entered into the drawing!

Also be sure to follow any instructions on each blog for any fun goodies they may be giving away!

Here are bookmarks I made to share with my friends. First,using scraps of paper; second, I wanted to include my favorite enamel powder - Piccolo Vintage Copper; and third, I wanted to create something quick, as I am off to my son's wedding tomorrow! I did the last by using my Martha Stewart punches rather than my favorite svg files. :)

Anyhow, enjoy!

This group is all about your scraps, using them up in a big way so they don't just keep piling up for little bits here and there. Scraps is the name; Treasures is the game!
CHALLENGE: Create a bookmark with scraps of paper. 

Here is the basic bookmark I created.

Since we are using scraps, here is the same bookmark in a variety of color combinations - limited to the scrap pile I chose from!

Bookmark Base: Cardstock - 2-1/8" x 7"
WordArtBorder Punch: Doily Lace Edge - Martha Stewart
Butterfly Punch: Large Monarch Butterfly
Enamel Powder: Vintage Copper Enamel Powder - Piccolo
Ribbon: Cream

This is the last chapter in this story.
