I am a copycat!

Hi my name is Laura and I am a copycat!  I blame Pinterest!  There are just too many cute ideas out there.
I found these darling gift tags on Decore to Adore.  They are originally from Anthro, don't they just have the coolest stuff!  Here is their version


 Flamingo Toes created an awesome template for them.  Makes it so much easier, Thanks Bev!  I already had cardstock, thread and twine.  I just purchased the cool corner punch with a coupon of course.  Here are mine:
 I used red and green for the Christmas ones, but made some with red and pink for the girls! Here they are all done!
LOVE THEM!

Here is my second copy!  Again from Laura at Decore to Adore.  She made these lovely bookmarks out of velvet ribbon with darling 'bits and bob's to adorn them.  Well since I was on limited time I sent out on a hunt for the supplies.  I found 2 colors of velvet ribbon at Joann's, that was all!  No one else had any, so it would have to do.  The ribbon clamps I found at a local bead store, Joann's does not carry them in store and Michaels had a variety pack for $3, I got mine for .30 each in the size I needed!  I did find some cool 'bits and bobs' at Michaels and Walmart, of all places!  I love how they turned out!
These are perfect gifts for my Mom, Mother-in-law and aunts.  Not many of us still read a paper book these days, but these are perfect.  DD wanted the Hunger Games for Christmas, I think she will be getting a bookmark to go with the set!
Now off to finish baking, have a great weekend all!

Toddles,
Laura
