Remember these?

ioleavesbookmark The magnetic bookmark card? 

They were all the rage a couple years ago – but I have not seen them in a while.  I’ve always liked them because the main part of the card is also a little gift. 

In this one, the image is is Fall Leaves by Impression Obsession.  I thought the shape really lent itself to a bookmark – so why not.

The image is colored with Copics, trimmed and mounted on a piece of straw colored matte.  I left the bottom of the matte a little long so I could punch it with the Diamond Elegance border punch.

bminside Inside the bookmark, I placed two strips of thin sheet magnet.  You can buy sheet magnet – or you can just cut up those magnetic business cards you get from all over.

When the bookmark is placed over the card (or a page in a book) the magnets keep it in place.

To make the card, I just matted patterned paper over card stock on the front.  Not positive about the competing patterns of the stamp image and the paper, but I was dying to use this patterned paper – so…. I did.

  1. Debbie,

    You have no idea how timely this is. Today is my best friend of 37 years’ birthday and she is a voracious reader. We are meeting up tomorrow at a bookstore and I can give her this. How cool! I’ll post my creation and link back. Thanks a million! Oh, and I think the bookmark goes fine with the paper. I love both and besides, it’s not like the bookmark is going to stay on the card.

    Wow. Cool. I have one of those magnetic bookmarks. It’s a penguin, so I love it, but yours is much prettier.

    I love that border punch. Uh oh.

    Wow, Catherine. This is really neat and a great idea for a book worm gift. I have never seen magnetic bookmarks like this. It looks great.

    Gorgeous bookmark and card! I think they go well together. The cool thing is once you remove the bookmark to use in a book, the card part still looks good by itself 🙂

    Glad I found this as Dad’s birthday is in a couple of weeks and he has everything – except a bookmark that will stay in whatever book he is reading :). Thank you!
