Scrap bookmarks

When you cut a sheet of 8-1/2 wide cardstock down to six inches wide so it will fit in the Cricut, you're left with a two-and-a-half inch wide strip... after using the Cricut for awhile, you've got a LOT of them! lol I'm making some of them into bookmarkers for the Friends of Gilda. They're very quick and easy to make - you just find some scraps that look nice together and add a few stickers or vertical stamps, and sandwich some pretty ribbon in between them. No lumpy embellishments because they're made to go in a book and they need to be flat! If you're wondering what size they are, they're 7 to 7-1/2 inches long and 2-2/12 inches wide depending on the scraps. The one with punched edges are a little smaller because the border punches trim 1/8 inch off the paper.
