Book Marker

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Hello Everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend :)

This week, I'm making a very easy book marker. The only reason I have is to reuse left over acetate/plastic from cotton packaging. I've been using cotton for cosmetic although not so often. But then, since I have a baby I've been purchasing cosmetic cotton for few packs every month. So, the result is that I'm getting so many acetate junks from the cotton packaging which I'm happy with it :)

You can find an acetate/plastic on top and on the bottom of the packaging to hold the cotton. And luckily, they're clean, strong and with perfect cut :) Now I have so many of them, I can use them for my paper crafts project, cards etc. I will share with you if I make other projects using this plastic.

Today, I'm just making a book marker from the acetate using some rub-on which I bought few years ago. You can find the tutorial HERE. I don't find rub-on anymore here, not in a book store or local crafts store! It's so sad actually!! Rub-on is so helpful and very useful especially if you need quick and easy project and the great thing is that it's clean and no mess!! :) I love rub-on and here we call it rugos :) I found these rub-on in a local book store at my hubby's village which is in another island :P I am so sad to find them piled up among other accessories. And it's so clear that not many people even look or touch it!! That's why I chose some images and bought them right away!! It feels like having a reunion with an old friend :) I left the store with a very happy feeling but also sad, I wish I could see that rub-on again!

I'm entering this book marker on the following challenge:
