Sister Stamps Release #11 - Kokeshi Doll
It's day one of Sister Stamps release #11 and I'm introducing their new Kokeshi Doll stamp. Isn't she cute? I've been making time to read books again lately and was using scrap papers as my bookmarks. I realized I didn't have any real bookmarks so this inspired me to make these. I used washi paper backed by cardstock for the base of the bookmark and I used some braided cording for the tassels. I knotted them towards the ends and unraveled them to create a fringe. I found little charms in my stash including bells, hearts and flowers and I tied them to the frayed part of the bookmark. Adding this element of detail was most fun and I love how they jingle when they hang from my book.
Here's a close up:
