Recycled Bookmark


I could have posted this on my thrifting blog, since this was a complimentary gift today at the thrift store, and it's a recycled card.
I could have also posted it on my crafty blog, since it's crafted from an old Christmas card.
But it wound up here, because it's a bookmark.

This is such a simple thing to make, but so lovely. The card has been cut with decorative scissors, hole-punched, and strung with some yarn.
Great way to recycle, and it's just so cute.
Would make a fun keepsake also, if using cards from friends or family.
Sure beats throwing them away, that's for sure.

A similar idea is worth sharing from the blog "I Heart Fabric". She sells gift tags that she fashions from vintage wrapping paper. Adorable.

Great idea. One could use Christmas cards from this year to make bookmarks to include with book gifts next year.
