3621  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Childhood Photo Magnetic Bookmark on: December 23, 2011 07:04:09 AM
Now that I'm all grown up I just exchange small gifts with my uncle at Christmas time.  Since he's a HUGE fan of books, I thought "how about a bookmark?"  So I sat down with mom (his baby sister) and her photo albums and found this photo taken of the 2 of them on the first day of school.



I scanned it and printed out 2 in the same size.  I cut around the two of them on one and attached it to have paper with some clear plastic in between.  Then I added a  metal washer to the back.



I attached the other photo to a magnet sheet designed to cover a heating/cooling vent that's only magnetic on one side, sandwiching the other side of the clear plastic between.

wow! im glad im not the only who thought that was real when they saw the thumb nail Embarrassed.
awesome work Shocked i love the tiny snowflakes, just the perfect finishing touch Smiley

Thanks!  Without the little sparkly detail of the snowflakes, it was kind of plain, but I didn't want to add colors that mom wouldn't be into.

Holy freaking crap! Most amazing stocking EVER!

You're so sweet!  I don't even think it's the best stocking I've made which is around a dozen.

Best idea ever! My Dad was a Santa at his company Christmas Parties for nearly 30 years. We have so many photos of him with us and other kids. I want to do these pillows NOW!


That's so great!  Wouldn't they make a great bunting, too?  [swooooooons]

At first glance, I seriously thought this was a real ice skate.  I was like, "How does that hang, it looks so heavy!"  AWESOME job.  Your mom is lucky to have a kid like you!

YEY!  I was hoping it was realistic-enough looking!  And awww, shucks; I'm lucky to have my mom.

Love it! it's just toooo cute!

THANKS!

A-friggin-dorable. Love all the lovely details but especially love the photo of your mum. It's like the absolutely perfect Christmas photo.

It's almost the quintessential picture with Santa from the mid-late 1940s, isn't it?  What's extra great is that Santa has a pinky ring!  He's OG, this St. Nick.

Your pic reminds me of Miracle on 34th street,  What a good idea!

Thanks exactly what my other good friend said when I was working on this at a crafty cocktail night we had last week!  Thanks to Pam for the idea!

As I did figure skating for years, I immediately fell in love.  Roll Eyes

Lovely work!  Grin

Thanks so much!  I struggled with trying to be realistic, but also practical for a stocking as well as looking like what the average person thinks a skate looks like vs what it really looks like.  Wink

My good friend, Pam, had a great idea for making a pillow using a photo from holidays past and when I came upon this photo of my mom visiting Santa way back when, I knew I had to copy her! 



I finally found a project worthy of using some of the vintage trims I'd collected but could never bring myself to use like this teeny, tiny gingham single-fold bias tape.



I'm pretty pleased with how the mitered corners turned out.  When I went to the button bin (that started with my great-great grandmother's buttons) to find a green or red button I came upon this vintage ceramic green and white checked button!  It was meant to be!

Just before I learned about this idea from Pam, I picked up this adorable, vintage double-fold bias tape at an antique mall.  I got so excited when I decided to make a cording out of it!

Lastly, I found a gingham print that's diagonal to back it with that's in a vintage-y colored green!



This gift will be wrapped up and labeled "For Grandma, Love Betty & Delia" who are our 2 pups whose Christmas collars will be covered in the same green gingham with a vintage, red rick rack detail.  SO CUTE!
