Here's how to make them:
Materials: 2 pieces ofWhisper white 4 by 4"
Whisper White 2 1/4" by 2 1/4"
Cardstock of choice (here daffodil yellow) 2 1/2 by 2 1/2"
Cardstock  2 pieces 4 X 1"
5/8" organza ribbon
Decorative edge punch
Met hod:
Find the mid point of 3 sides of the 4 X 4 piece of whisper white card stock.  Score diagonally between these marks and crease using a bone folder.
Unfold
Cut bottom of  bookmark with decorative edge punch (here Eyelet Border punch)
Attach one strip of  4 by 1" cardstock just above decorative edge.
Attach ribbon all the way around the cardstock attaching securely at the back.  Tie a knot close to one edge at the front
Attach second piece of 4 by 1 cardstock at the back of the bookmark covering the ribbon where it is secured.
Stamp and colour image on 2 1/4 by 2 1/4 piece of whisper white (Messages from Mom)
Mat with 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 piece of card stock and attach to the bookmark as indicated in the picture.
Refold the corners and turn the book mark over.  Attach a piece of sticky strip across the seam.
Cut the second piece of 4 by 4 whisper white in half diagonally.  Attach to the back of the bookmark to cover the seam.  Your book mark is done.
