Quarterly Training Swaps

Yesterday was our Stampin Up Team's quarterly training at Pudsey.  There were 30 of us there and as usual we have a swap.
I chose to do bookmarks. 
I managed to get them all done and labelled up in time (just)
and here's a few of them for you to see.

Close up


To make these bookmarks, I cut out a load of tags using the Two Tags Bigz die, in various colours, then stamped (and on some I also heat embossed) with the flourish from Creative Elements .
I made the flowers by punching 5 x 1.1/4"  scallop circles, spritzing them, then crumpling them up.
When dry I then fastened them together with a brad and glued them to the circular bit of the die cut.
On the close up photo I had to stick the small oval with the greeting on as I had dropped some glue on it!!
