Happy Father's Day Dad!!! Page Corner Bookmark for my Dad

Here is a Page Corner Bookmark that I made for my Dad.
This is how the page corner bookmark looks when you mark your page in your book.

I used Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP because it is cardstock weight.
I stamped and cut out circles from the Circle Circus stamp set and adhered them on the front and back of the bookmark in a diagonal design. Next I colored a chipboard "H" for (Harry, my Dad) with a soft suede stampin' write marker and adhered that over top of the center circle. Next I added a very vanilla grommet to the top left corner taking care to only stick the points through the top layer of the bookmark. Finally I took a 10" piece of kraft taffeta ribbon and tied that onto the grommet. I fixed a metal hinge embellishment from my hodgepodge hardware kit onto the end with a brad and secured it to the back of the ribbon with crystal effects. This will keep the end of the ribbon from fraying overtime.
Viola! A cute handmade gift for my Dad!
Tutorial can be seen below in post dated June 15th.
