Mothers' Day celebration's bookmarks---and Fantabulous-friday-#158-paper-roses

Dear scrappers,
I made these bookmarks for my friends in our Mothers' day celebration. I used the idea of paper flowers from Fantaboulous Friday challenge:

I used the Chantilly WOTG (CTMH) Color combination and Rhine stones, but used June 2013 SOTM for the flowers and the coordinated cuts from the Artise Cartridge.

As base I used the the Frame Flair stamps and their Art Philosophy coordinated cuts.

For my sentiment, I used the stamps from the cricut Kudos collection for Artise, but used the circle frames from the Perfect Fit-Mom stamp set


I followed the recommendations in each stamp to set the size of each cut in my gypsy. It is no necessary to use the gypsy for this project, but it was much easier and quicker using it to cut everything for 12 bookmarks with cricut.
I used a magnet on each side of the frame to keep the bookmarks secure in place. I cut small squares from magnetic tape strips from Basics Elements, however, I recommend to use stronger magnets to secure ticker pages or to covert the magnets with cardstock. I couldn't cover both pieces because the magnets would not close the bookmark in place:

I then used the bookmarks to close some goody bags with cookies:

I used the goody bags as decoration for the table, where we placed the gifts for our exchange:

As always, please send me a note or your email address if your are interested in having the gypsy file...
Have a great weekend,
