Paint Chip Card Bookmarks!

I know we all probably have some paint chip cards lying around from one of our many "at home" projects... and if you don't you can always grab some (Free of charge of course) from your local paint or hardware store! These make the perfect gift for that "book loving" friend of yours and they are super easy and cheap to make!

What you will need:

Paint Chips
Stamp set
Large grommets
Silk ribbon

Take whatever colour of paint chips you like and stamp them with a stamp set. You can choose whatever colour or whatever design you have. If you are a good free hand drawer you can draw or write on them what you wish! If you don't have ink on hand, use a stencil and a marker or a liquid pen. Let dry.

Punch a hole in the top where you want the ribbon to go through. Place the grommets around the hole and lace through the ribbon. If you don't have a grommet machine, you can hot glue paper around or lace, anything really! Use your imagination! Tie a knot at the top so it's fastened tightly enough to stay in place!

Here's a quick one I made  to go with a book for a friend.
