Corner Bookmark Tutorial!

Hi Simply Sassy Fans!

I'm so excited to share my corner bookmark tutorial with you today! :D I am going out of my comfort zone and have created a video tutorial! This is my first EVER so bear with me. haha I hope you don't mind being my guinea pigs! ;) I thought it would be fun and it actually was once I got over my stage fright! It is a bit long so I apologize in advance.

So here is what we're going to make in the video:

Super easy to create! Here is what you will need:

1 - 4" x 4" heavy cardstock 
2 - 1 7/8"x 3 7/8" pattern paper
1 - 2 3/4" 2 3/4" pattern paper
Embellishments as desired!

Here is the tutorial *sorry the quality is bad - I had to reduce it in order to get the video to load up to youtube* Any tips, suggestions, etc. are greatly welcomed for my first attempt at a video tutorial!

I really hope you enjoyed it! I was talking softly since my girls were asleep and my craft room is right outside their room! *giggle* I can't wait to do another one! Like I mentioned in my video, I'd LOVE to see your bookmarks. Please link them up in this post and I'll be sure to visit your blog! :D

  8. Brilliant tutorial Carisa, you've totally nailed it! I used to love making these little bookmarks - but then I sort of ran out of steam a little.. I think you've given me the inspiration I needed to start making them again!!

    Since getting my Kindle I rarely have paperbooks, so these will be perfect to make as little gifts!
