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...

hehe... that thought struck me after i had already posted it up but maybe you could put a sheet of that iron transfer paper[blank] on top becuz my grandma always does things like that so... but if you dont want you iron to have melted candy wrappers stuck to it then i suggest you not experiment...lol Smiley great idea though! (lars n me r eye to eye) lol

Just keep swimmin, swimmin, swimmin.

Those are so cute and I am so going to make some, someday. You might be able to use wraping paper or old manuals, I don't know my mind is just runing away. Cheesy

I can't spell, so deal. =^_^=

I'm sure that you could make these with just about anything flat and semi-paperish...  And that you can sew through...   Roll Eyes I think it might be kind of cool to experament with vinal and things like that...  If anyone is adverturous enough to try something like that, please share!!!  Thanks for all the great comments!!!

That is so neat.  Wish I would have thought of it myself.

I really like that Idea;p It would be funny of you made some beads out of resin dipped candy and attached them to the end of the bookmark on a tassel;p But then your brother might try to eat them;p

That is a really good idea, pickledkitty!!!  I just need resin... hmmm  I'm sure something like it would work though...

Did you laminate them before sewing? (They look kind of shiny) I'm worried they might rip or get snagged and tear.

katiebug: I didn't laminate them, actually, although I probably could.  I've noticed that the wrappers are actually really durable. (Esp. cause all they do is sit between two pages  Wink) I don't think that you have to worry too much about them getting torn.  At least, after I have sewn the foam paper on the back, none of mine have torn.

 I have made quite a few more bookmarks out of skittles.  I think that I like that size the best.  Just if anyone was wondering, I used "Darice Foamies" paper.  I don't know about you guys, but I have seen a whole bunch of those cut-outs that come in tubs, and some of them are even sticky on the back.  The "paper" is made by the same company.

 Thanks for all of the comments!!!

Awsome Idea. You got me on the band wagon now. As far as lamanating them, you could use some of the clear duct tape. Wal-mart has it back in the automotive section with the repair tape you put on broken light covers. I've actulyed used it to lamanate a few pictures that I only had in digatal format and no photo paper for my printer.
