There are two types of readers, One with bookmarks & one without bookmarks. Another one type is ME who make & giveaway bookmarks a LOT. I have sent my handmade bookmarks in different countries so far. I design for myself, for my friends, fans & followers as well as my customers. Let’s have a look at my recent bookmarks I’ve designed some for giving away & for sale. I hope you will like the easy peasy way to make a paper bookmark with butterfly paper punch.

Remember I decoupage a box few weeks back, There I got some pretty scrapbook paper sheets along with a butterfly paper punch. I made these bookmarks by using that pretty designed sheet & paper punch. I used some crepe paper for the other side of bookmark. Let’s see how to make bookmarks!

Steps :

First of all I measure the paper sheet & then cut it with a sharp cutter. There were 4 strips of paper after cutting and separating them.

Make a point where you want to circle punch for putting a tassel or thread etc.
Put all three paper strips together & punch it nicely.
Then keep the sheets together & fix under the butterfly punch & press it. You can do it one by one as well. The 4th bookmark strip made a little mess with the punch & butterfly design was lost. But I am glad to have these three butterflies well.

How To Decoupage Corner Shelf

How To Decoupage Corner Shelf

Paper decoupage is one of my favorite kind of crafting. My first ever paper decoupage was an Eye Glasses Case which turned out pretty interesting. Then I decoupage my cell phone casing. I have decoupaged many products & crafts so far. It’s always fun to play with paper pieces & crafting with paper scrap or motifs. Have you ever tried decorating something with paper scrap or paper motifs? I recently decoupage a wooden corner shelf which turned out so well really.Today I am going to share that decoupaged corner shelf which I have designed with some motifs from a paper sheet which we usually use for gifts wrapping.
Have a look how I have designed this wooden corner shelf with paper pieces & mod podge. It’s super easy & will hardly take your 10 minutes to transform a dull look into an attractive space. Let’s have a look :

This image seems OK but if you will look at the BEFORE image, Then you will appreciate it more. Actually this wooden shelf installed in the corner of the room & then the room wall paint done. There were paint stains and spots all over this wooden corner shelf. I wanted to paint it in golden color as the curtains of this room are in golden shade. But suddenly I changed my mind & tried decoupage directly on the shelf.

I measure the shelf space where I was going to paste the sheet. Then I cut some circle motifs from the sheet accordingly. Cutting takes hardly 10 minutes & in 5 more minutes pasting was done. This is just 15 minutes project & super easy too. All you need to do is CUT & PASTE. That’s it.
I cut a triangle of paper & apply glue on the shelf surface. Paste properly & try not to make any folds. Make the surface plain. Then paste the circle motifs one by one.

Well I am glad to see my pinterests followers crossed 12k recently.  Thank you everyone for following me on Pinterest. Life is easy with only a few original hacks over pinterest.
