Swap #3- Bookmarks

Firstly, thank you all for the enthusiasm that has made us come through two successful swaps and we are ready for our third one to kick off!!! Am excited and hope you guys continue to show the excitement you have shown in the previous swaps and rock it this month too!!!

Okie enough of blabbering of the past swaps..lets come to the current one!!!

This month we are looking at "Bookmarks" ...yeah simple is it??? but we have a twist here...sorry guys cant be so plain and simple with us BB Gossip Gurls and yes as said before our aim is to try new stuff and pull ourselves and you from the comfort zone that we prefer living in!!! So get ready for the twist!!!

Kindly find below a few varieties of bookmarks .....now each one of you who register for this swap is to make atleast 5 different kinds of bookmarks following the list given below!!! You can choose any 5 as per your feasibility!!! You cannot repeat the variety/style at any cost!!!


** WARNING: this is a picture heavy post!!!


A. Paper Bookmarks:
1. Normal Bookmarks- 6 inches X2.5 inches




2. Corner Bookmarks- anything above 3 inches square


3. Magnetic Bookmarks- final end product after the middle fold should be 6 inches X2.5 inches




Magnets attached only at the edges (the black strip that you can see in the inside side...need to attached on both ends)



You cant see the magnets here ...but this is made in the similar fashion as above but magnetic dots are used instead of strips.



The full bookmark has magnetic attached....this is the most sturdy magnetic bookmark!!! I can vouch for this one!!!

Another magnetic bookmark


B. Beaded/Jewellery Bookmarks

1. Hooked Jewellery Bookmark- as per teh normal hooks available in the market



2. Stringed Beaded Bookmark- length of full string should be 12 inches.





C. Fabric/Ribbon Bookmark-  12 inches full length of ribbon





You may or may not add beads below!!! please look down for another sample in ribbon and fabric bookmark with simple addition of flowers and embellishments!!!



These ribbons in all above examples can be replaced with "good quality" fabric....by "good quaity" we mean that even if you are using leftovers please ensure that they are not dirty and messy!!!


D. Others 

1. Ice Cream Stick Bookmarks- standard ice cream stick



2. Clip Bookmarks- standard clips available in market




Rules for  swap-an addition!!!!

You are to follow all the basic rules laid by us for the swaps throughout!!! Main being the deadline and quality of swap (let me warn you...negative marking for the same has started from our second swap) !!! Plus there is a small addition!!!

What an awesome post-- so many varieties ...such a lot of research and hard work must have gone into this-- I am so impressed!! Thank You girls!

Dr Sonia S V said...

Saumya I have never made bookmarks before so please guide as to the general size and what thickness paper would give a good functional one. Once I am sure I will be able to do a good job then shall register otherwise I would be too nervous!

Saumya said...

Doc your questions are answered in the blog post now...kindly see the sizes against their names ....

Saumya said...

Hi ash....dimensions is something we would not want to alter as we want some uniformity in the swap. However, let us know what in terms of materials and techniques do you want to experiment.....we may give it a thought.

preeti said...

Wow , would love to make different types of bookmark .Creative idea...

Deepthi said...

I do have some doubts regarding hooked jewellery bookmarks...can I get a bit more info?

Saumya said...

Hey Deepti,

We shall soon be sharing some tute links on our blog so please keep a close watch on this space and am sure your queries would be addressed. In case you still have any doubts please write back to us and we would be happy to help!

Deepthi said...

And I have another doubt, Should we make 1 in all 5 categories or more?
Kindly bear with me..... I will be asking many questions since i have never made all these things ever....

Saumya said...

Deepti. Categories have been made only to avoid as much overlap as possible....u can choose all in one category or one from each category as per your feasibility ....we are just looking at 5 different styles of bookmarks listed on the blog. Hope I have answered your query and don't worry we have also not tried all the styles mentioned here....it's gonna be a learning experience for us too! And we are happy to help anyone with their doubts.
