Bookmark & Serendipity frame



It was my turn to set the member challenge over on Charmed Craft talk forum So the challenges I set were to make seredipity paper & use it in a project of your choice to include blooms & a charm, and to make a usable bookmark to include ribbons & buttons.



So this is how my frame started out..................



Blooms & a charm .........................



More blooms & charms ..............................



Serendipity paper covering the frame ..............



Pearl accents .....................................


The bookmark



To include ribbon & buttons..............



Buttons from my button collection ..................



The body of the bookmark is made from 2 strips of plain ribbon which I stamped with stazon ink. The top attached to a buckle decorated with lace & beads attached. The bottom is knotted with a large covered bead above the buttons.



I decorated the top with beads, lace & a buckle.

There are some lovely makes for the challenge - do pop over for a look .....................

Thanks Caroline. The challenge was set on the 24th Feb & the deadline was midnight yesterday - I do admit to being a bit last minute at times! LOL It was fun doing it though :-)
