Corner Bookmark For My Son

Evening Peeps,

Just a quick post, my Son has been nagging me since returning to school to make him a bookmark, since I did one for his Sister but never quite got round to making one for him, bless. I recently won at the Pixie Dust Studio and chose this  "Harry Potter" image as my prize, isn't he fab..

This is a corner bookmark, which I love as it is so different from the traditiional straight bookmark and so ooooooo easy to make. The tutorial for this is HERE.  More importantly my son love's it!

Posted by Picasa

I  have coloured him using copic markers:-
Hair - E59, E49, E25, E53
Face - E13, E11, E00, R22
Cloak/Trousers/Shoes - C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Scarf - Y15, Y13, Y11, R39, R37, R35, R32
Jumper - YG67, YG63, G20

Materials Used:-
Copics - listed above
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Papers from Bearly Mine CD
Jumbo fluffy ric rac from stash
Spots from Craftwork Cards
