Simple Gift Idea

Hi everyone! I was cleaning my craft room the other day in search of my mojo and instead of finding said mojo, I came across a box of alterable items :) I found these magnetic bookmarks that I purchased from Michaels many moons ago and decided that it was going to be perfect for a quick and simple gift idea - or something that you could tuck in with a card :D

This is what the magnet started out looking like and all it took was a strip of designer paper and some double sided adhesive to start the transformation.

And here is the finished product using the "Relax & Enjoy" sentiment from the JustRite Charmed Cling Mounted set. I stamped it on some ivory paper and heat embossed it to add a little elegance. I then sponged around the sentiment and then added it to my altered die cut.

Since I wanted to have a nice presentation of the bookmark, I created a little base for it and then added the to/from sentiment from the JustRite Fancy Nested Frames set.This not only looks nice, but it can be added to a present like a gift tag or tucked in with a card as a nice little surprise.

This would make a great addition to go with a purchased book as a gift or to go alongside of a gift card to your favourite book store :D Thanks for coming by today and we will see you all soon :D
