SHOPPING OUR STASH #253 Square Roots

Hello and good morning! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to go back to when you first started out crafting: decoupage, cross stitching, scrapbook layouts, altering found things, etc. You get my drift, right? We challenge you to make anything BUT a card!

For my project, I used some recycled cardboard and made a bookmark:

I trimmed a piece from the board, punched a hole in one side, then stenciled it with a couple different inks. I dumped out a bunch of sequins from my bag-o-sequins, and dug out the silver ones, then glued 'em on. Found some ribbon that I won years ago, but don't think I've ever used, and finally did use it! My bookmark needed a little something more, so I stamped the 'hi' outline stamp, then filled it in with a silver pen. Worked for me!

I do hope you play along with our Square Roots challenge at Shopping Our Stash! For more amazing projects, please do check out what my teammies created, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
