IF YOU'VE GOT TO READ, DO IT IN STYLE!

Hi, guys!  I'm back with another little project to share!

Do you remember the pretty green cardstock I just used on my notepad and pencil holders?  Well, I think I've just fallen in love with the color I used on that set and wanted to do something else using that same color.  So, I decided this project would be so pretty in that color too!  I really like how this this idea turned out; it's a monogram book cover with a bookmark:


Isn't this pretty?  And here it is with one of my favorite books inserted into the cover using the bookmark as a page holder:



I love this, and it certainly would make a wonderful gift for all my novel-reading friends!!!

Don't you agree it would make a great gift set for all the readers you know?!!



This is such a simple project; you basically construct the book cover the same as when you made covers for your school books (you can remember, right? -- smile!); the book mark is using Inkssentials Memory Frames, some ribbon and your imagination! 

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you like my project!!!

Hugs and smooches, and I'll be seeing you!

Beautiful as always! I think this would be such a great gift to give! I will keep this in mind as Christmas rolls around this year. I do love that green paper. What is it? I really like those memory frames too. Great job!

As always you come up with simple but special ideas. How considerate a gift this would make for so many.
I have a friend that flies a lot and would surely find this pretty to cover some of her books.
Thanks so much for a beautiful project.
