harry potter bookmarks

when the harry potter books first started coming out i didn't really catch on to the craze. once the movies started, though, i really liked them and decided that once i had seen them all, i would go back and read all the books. i spent the past few years collecting the books and movies (watching them multiple times as i was happily crafting) and, at the beginning of this year, after getting the final movie for christmas, i was sooooo excited to start reading!

not wanting to dog ear the pages as i do in many of my books i thought about grabbing a bookmark but quickly realized that no ordinary bookmark would do! this is harry potter for goodness sake! and i had also just received the paper doll dress up cart and knew full well there were wizarding dies to be cut!

 for the background i used textured red and tan paper with tim holtz distress stain, distress inks, and glimmer mist. i then used my star cluster punch with metallic gold paper behind. this was also the first time i got to use my crop a dile big bite, which was fun! on the back of the bookmarks i wrote out many of the spell names they use in the books and movies. and because i have a harry-potter-loving nephew, i figured i should make a bookmark for him, too! hope he loves it!
