    This is a very nice and beautiful website… I love the bookmarks.. And although I am an expert in crafts and obviously I know how to make a bookmark, sometimes I see new creations of new bookmarks.. I always try to do my best on the crafts I make, or crafts that I invent, but I try to find nicer inventions to make my bookmark nicer.. So keep up the good work in the good website and add more crafts so you add more members in this website.. I really love this website.. Goodluck on being popular… xxxxxxxxxxxxx Good work.

    I make bookmarks from prepasted wallpaper scraps by cutting strips twice as long as you want, wetting well, and folding in half and letting dry. Easy and cheap. Plus they look nice.
