Vintage page bookmarks are not only a clever idea, they ...
look so cool!
Gail found this fabulous old yellow paged spanish dictionary for a whoppin' $1.50 in Budapest. (I think knowing that makes this project extra cool)
She wanted to do something special with the book but wasn't sure what, until a brainstorm hit. She dusted off her never used $20 laminator found at Costco and got to work. ($20?! I want one!)
She cut out the book pages ...
And laminated them 4 in a row. Perfection! I love that the book ends up being a useful keepsake!
Gail also has another suggestion on how to create the bookmarks without a laminator.
