Memorial Bookmarks

Hi everyone,

I have something a little different to share with you today.  A friend asked me if I could make him some memorial bookmarks.  After taking a peek at the sample he had, I thought "sure, why not give it a try."  Well, I am very pleased with how they turned out.  

I created a template, inserted the photo, and typed the obituary on the front.  I kept playing around with the fonts until I was satisfied (I'm kind of crazy like that!)

On the back are the dates with a verse.  I added a few white butterflies.

Since I don't have a laminating machine I took a drive over to our local office supply store to have them done.  It only took 4 laminating pouches to do all 12 bookmarks.  Now they will be protected and always look brand new.  What a great way to honor a loved one and cherish the precious memories you once shared!

I packaged them in a pretty glassine bag, which was embossed using a damask embossing folder.

I'm so happy I could help out a co-worker and try something new for a change.  He liked them so much he even sent me flowers  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

What a nice project. I just did some funeral programs for my grandmother this past week. It was nice creating something that I know she would really love.

You did a wonderful job with these. And I love the idea of keeping a loved one close by with a bookmark - the photo and info about her life. Lovely!
