Here are instructions to create a unique contemporary bookmark project. It is easy to make, perfect for scraps and easy to sell for a nice profit. Hope you like it. (The photo doesn’t do it justice. I have to take a better one) I am just getting my site going and will be adding new projects emphasizing wood and wood art.

Great idea, love the instruction on your site. I just might make some of these for clients.

Interesting. Do they just lay flat between the pages? And strips glued together and how thick? Cute idea.

are you trying to keep us from throwing away every teeny tiny bit of scrap wood? Well done! Neat idea. I can think of a couple people who’d like one of these.

Thanks for all the encouraging coments. Cathy they do lay flat between the pages and are about 3/32 thick. I have another design that has a thin cut on the edge with four pieces of ribbon glued in that are great for bookmarking several pages in any book. I use it in my bible. I will show you in a future post.

Scott, I got a laugh out of your post. I have hard time throwing away my scraps. My guess is I am not the only one. Take Care.
