Craft Fair Series 2018 + Bookmarks

So last year I did bookmarks as a way to use up my paper stash. See that post here : Craft Fair Series 2017 + Bookmarks. I think I ran out of ideas and I didn't love all the ones I did. So this year I decided to remake some of them. Let's take a look:
Here's the deets: These have been hand painted. I love em'! I painted an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of photo paper with acrylic paint. When dry I secured the photo paper to a piece of card stock and then cut into 2x6 rectangles to fit in my sleeves. Let's take a look at a few from last year with packaging:
Bookmark Packaging Ideas
All you need are your basic supplies for card making, a sleeve and tassel, and ta-done. You can find the sleeves available in the Charm Shop. For the packaging I used a 2x8 self sealing cello bag and a 2 1/4 x 1 inch strip of designer paper (scored at 1/2) folded over the top. I don't know if I love the topper but the bag was definitely necessary, otherwise that tassel went everywhere before I could get it to the show.
