Magnetic book marks

Hello! Hello!  For my Technique workshop this month, we did a wax paper technique.  It was SO FUN!!  You simply cut a piece of wax paper the size of your embossing folder and run it through your machine.  Then, you sandwich this piece between two pieces of white cardstock and iron the sandwich on the highest setting.  Pull apart.  Using a sponge and inks, you simply rub over the cardstock until the paper is saturated with the amount of color you desire.  You can wipe it off with a paper towel if you'd like.  This will remove any residue on the waxed areas. 

We used these pieces to create bookmarks.  We folded a label in half, glued the back between our back layer (red)  and the middle layer (brown).  Then, we simply glued two magnets on so your bookmark doesn't come out of your book :). 

I was thrilled to discover that you can stamp on top of the waxed background.  I didn't know if it would work or not, but it did!

Hope you found some inspiration.Thanks for stopping by. -Dari
