Timothy the Tiger


Welcome to my last 'Free for All' posting for PaperWorksCo - it has been a fun month showcasing different projects using products from PaperWorksCo.

Today I've made this cute corner bookmark using Timothy the Tiger from the Jungle Jesters set.  Isn't he the cutest - I personally think he has more meow than grrrrrr!!!  I've been wanting to make one of these bookmarks for ages.  My eldest son is an avid reader and has been bugging me for the longest time to make him a bookmark.  So, like the true procrastinator that I am, I finally got round to it, LOL!  I followed the tutorial I found on SCS here.

Timothy is coloured with copics and cut out.  I distressed the nestie circle with Tea Dye ink.  The jungle paper is DCWV Safari stack and the orange cardstock and backing paper (Jillibean Soup) is from Peggy's store.  The sentiment ticket is Tim Holtz.

Here's how the bookmark sits on the corner of the page.  I think I will be making lots of these for christmas gifts this year ... pair it up with a nice Chapters gift card in a matching card holder and they make perfect teacher gifts or stocking stuffers!

Thanks for your visit today.  I love that you're able to stop by and am so grateful for the comments you leave - they are a ray of added sunshine in my day!  Have a fabulous day whatever you're doing!
