Weekend project: DIY bookmarks & Notecards

Posted by helen on July 14, 2019

Black White Swimsuit Barbie is a forever culture icon.

I made some bookmarks and note cards as a tribute to her 60th Anniversary. 


When I was little, I collected many bookmarks. I still have some hand-painted bookmarks from my childhood.  I still like bookmarks. I didn’t see any nice Barbie bookmarks, so I created my own.   Making these tassels is a lot of hassles–It took me nearly 2 hours to figure out how to tie a perfect “Chinese Knot”


I loved making cards. many old friends have received my hand-made cards on the days they needed a little celebrations.  Once a friend watched me making New Year Cards then said: “The day you stop making cards would be the day you truly grow up” I did stop, now I’m making them again.

Have great summer time!

p.s. I’m working on my next project, an OOAK doll for Barbie Convention raffle room

    It’s great to see your creativity at work, Helen. Have a lovely and hopefully, not too hot of a summer.
