Glitzy Bookmarks with Michelle Philippi

We're right about halfway through summer break which means school will be starting up again before we know it. When we were camping a while back, we were in the trailer on a rainy night and my daughter says to me "mom, can I go read?" Mom can I go read. Really? She's ASKING to go read? That's awesome! I told her that reading is probably the ONE thing she never needs to ask permission to go do. I checked in on her a little bit later and noticed that she was holding her book place with an old Walgreens receipt - LOL I knew then that I needed to make her some bookmarks to cultivate this new-found love of reading that she has.
So I've paired some great patterned papers and embellies from Glitz Design with some fun twine and made a couple little bookmarks all packaged up in a fun bag and ready to give to her on the first day of school.

Love these bookmarks---especially for a kid! The one that really stood out for me the most was the one about playing fair. Great idea for incorporating a little dose of 'life's lessons' into something a kid will see every time they pick up a book. Plus, it's a super cool design---love it!!
