Parchment Bookmark

The recent very cold weather has had me searching for crafty things to do on a lap tray in front of the fire instead of spending so much time in my chilly craftroom with the health and safety issue of tripping over strategically placed fan heaters.  I realised that I'd not done any parchment craft for absolutely ages so spent a quiet time looking through some of my magazines and  old newsletters from Parchment Express which is where I came across the pattern for this clever corner bookmark designed by Pauline Loweth.  I'd forgotten how small the holes are in the fine perforating grid and this is far from perfect but I thoughd I'd show you anyway - and I will keep practising to improve my technique.  I popped the corner over a piece of card to scan it and it is like a large photo corner and handy for keeping your place when reading a book.


  1. What a beautiful bookmark...
