Bird Bookmark

*Edited to Add*....
I followed Beate's tutorial
HERE on SCS to make this. She has step-by-step instructions with pictures AND a great video tutorial at the end.



My MIL loves birds....she has three parrotts, a miniature parrott, and a whole bird santuary in her backyard with bird feeders GALORE...so of course this Backyard Birds set from JustRite was just screaming her name. She likes to read too so I thought I'd make her one of these corner bookmarks that I'm addicted to making lately.

The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics (numbers are in the supply list below), and I added some Stickles on the thistle.

Hope you have an awesome day!
