My last blog post showed my Shabby Chic Rosette Flowers ...
...and today I'm going to show you what I used them for.
Here's my inspirational pin!
 
I used my flowers and a tutorial from the above to create my own bookmarks.
Here's my tutorial:
First cut out fabric pieces for each bookmark you wish to make measuring 4" x 8" and back each piece with slightly smaller interfacing:
 
Fold the fabric right sides together...
 
...and sew along one short side and the unfolded long side:
 
Turn the right way out, fold the opening in and iron flat:
 
Sew round each of the four sides:
 
 
Attach the flowers with fabric glue and you're done!
