Back to school bookmarks - Taylormadecards4u project

It is September already? Woowww, time flies away :)

We have all been very busy working at projects to inspire you. Monica from Taylormadecards4u  has amazing new kits and ephemera in her shop. You definitely need to check them out.
My inspiration for you, for today, are some bookmarks I made using the Vintage Teacher tags set. This set is abs AMAZING! You can use it in sooo many ways.
 I decided to make some mixed media bookmarks, because you can never have too many, right?

And I was also able to recycle some leftovers from previous projects.

For the base I used recycled cardboard on which I glued tissue paper of various patterns.

I distressed the edges using Vintage Paper Distress Ink. I applied stripes of wrapped washi tape for some more vinatge effect.

I also had some flowers from a previous project and I decided to use them as border for the tags.

The flowers are distressed with Derwent Charcoal pencils.

Some of the bookmarks have floral stickers. :) 

Each tag has a piece of pink ribbon attached to it. And I also used some small quotes to add the final touch.

What do you think? I think that these are perfect gifts for your favorite teacher/s. They are very easy to be made, you just need to use the tag set and your imagination. 
Also, stay tuned 'cause on the 15th September I have another project for the Back To School theme. It is well worth it to wait.

Until then, check out Monica's shop and blog, and make sure you make your stash for the Christmas presents. :)

Hugs and kisses, stay safe, take care and be creative!
