The other day I was reading a book in one of my classes after I had finished all of my homework.  My teacher had given some skittles for helping her pass out a GAZILLION math papers.  When it was time to go, I put the wrapper in my book as a bookmark.  It stayed for a while, at least, until I got home. Cheesy  I decided to make it a more permanate bookmark and sewed some felt on the back.  It looked pretty neat so I sewed up some more wrappers, except I used foam.  I gave away the original one to my cousin already, but I like the foam ones better anyways.  Here are some pics.

If anyone wants a tutorial, please tell me.  They are pretty self explanitory.


-This is my first time to post pictures, I am really sorry if they don't work and I will try to fix them ASAP!-

Lars:  Lol... Yeah, my lil brother always asks for some candy after he sees me using one of my book marks... Grin

Mimi_Sita12:  I don't know, the plastic might melt... Huh  Do you think that you can iron foam???  I have never tried...  Anyone have foam ironing experience they would like to share, because if I could iron the bookmarks they would probably look more pro...

Thanks for the comments everyone! Cheesy
