As a book lover, I am extremely fond of collecting bookmarks!
I still love and read books in all it's original glory simply because, I love the look, feel and smell of a brand new book in my hand and would not trade that for a digital reader!
Over the years, I have collected quite a few bookmarks but I am especially drawn towards the textural ones or those that have some really thought provoking quotes or proverbs, or one that has a simple serene landscape painting which takes me to a totally different land when I see it.
That set the ball rolling and I immediately got to work and got some bookmarks done ! Painting these was the easiest part of the puzzle, but how would I package them?
I knew I wanted the end product to be a perfect gift for the book lover, but at the same time wanted it to look elegant. I did not want to use plastic sleeves, since I wanted the reader to get a feel of the 100%cotton paper that I was using for the bookmark and plastic and fine art have never been good friends! Thus began my search for the perfect bookmark packaging.
Then someone on one of my FB groups suggested envelopes and voila!
.....that was exactly what I needed!
..after some tweaking and branding , my bookmarks were ready to be shipped!
Here are some pics ..... Love Papertrey Ink sentiment stamps..my favorite!
