How-to: fancy bookmark

India-inspired bookmark In addition to being eye-catching, this fancy bookmark allows you to sandwich multiple pages to keep your place. Of course, the decorated front can be stamped with any image and embellished to your heart’s content — I went with an India-inspired theme.

A great way to show your love of reading with a perfectly poetic statement!
