After a whole week without updating I am finally back.It’s been a difficult week since the kids and DH were all ill. They had common cold, laryngitis, bronchitis… everything is almost back to normal now!
You will not be surprised when you see the card… after having the doctor checking the kids all the time!
Here is it! A bookmark made out of wooden tongue depressor!

Need more inspiration on these wooden bookmarks? Check them out! Aren’t they cute?
My favorite is the one with the butterfly. It even has swarovski beads on her antennas!

You can enjoy the video and then scroll down for a list of supplies used on all the bookmarks. You can subscribe on my YouTube channel here.

  1. Now I wonder what the doctor is going to say when I ask if I can have a bunch of tongue depressors to go!!! I love this idea, and yes the books look exactly like books. I love all the distressing you used on it. And, I like the pictures of what you used, have not seen that done before and I really like being able to see what tools you’ve used. So sorry the family was sick, glad you’re ok!

  2. Such a superb idea. And so pretty if only I had those supplies to tide me over!! (People say its a small world, then why the heck do they charge a bomb for international shipping. The item doesn’t cost so much as much as the shipping does)

    At first I thought those stack of books, were travelling bags! dhuh! then I saw the owl and then figured, ok those are books…blame my overactive imagination.

    I’ve never seem a picture link of any item before but I think the text link of the item would be would save the post from being too lengthy. Would you agree?


  3. Wonderful blog….love your ideas… do some great videos too. Will visit often 😉 Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  4. Dear Vicky,
    great idea and beautifully done! My favourite is the owl 😉
    And I would prefer the image links . I seem to be the visual type. It is so much easier to immediately understand what you mean. Again thanks a lot for your helpful, inspiring videos!

    P.S. Glad your family is ok again. Take care.

  5. Wow! Vicky, you have amazed me with your TALENT! I have LOTS of tongue depressors and will stole some from John’s office (LOL)! Hope everyone is all healthy and happy now 🙂 Thanks for this awesome video. I like the visual display of the materials since it gives me the idea right away… I guess I’m more of a visual person 🙂

  6. The image links are awesome! Love the wooden bookmarks! I check your site everyday! Thanks for all the videos 🙂

  9. I love the photos and links of the products you used. I will be ordering the stamps real soon. I look forward to your posts each week – I wish I had a fraction of the creativity you do.

  10. Dear Vicky,

    This is to inform that I have entered a card challenge at Lucy’s Cards: Inspired by. I used one of your beautiful cards as an inspiration. Thank you so much. This is MY VERSION to your card’s Clean and Simple Hello.

  11. Hi Vicky! I so love your videos! This one is so special…to think you got inspiration from the doctor and tongue depressors! I love it! Hope Aris and the children have a speedy recovery!

  12. Γεια σου! συγγνωμη που γραφω στα ελληνικά αλλά τα αγγλικά μου δεν είναι και τόσο καλά!! είσαι απίστευτη!! όλα αυτά που φτιάχνεις είναι τρομερά!! είσαι έμπνευση για μένα και σίγουρα θα δοκιμάσω τους σελίδοδείκτες!! και νομίζω πως προτιμώ κι εγώ τα λινκ για τα υλικά!
    σε ευχαριστουμε που μοιράστηκες το βίντεο,ήταν κατατοπιστικότατο!

  13. Wow! I need to find me some tongue depressors! Very inpirational! Again, you put in so much detail in such a tiny space!

  14. Hi !

    What an awesome idea 🙂 But where can we buy the tongue depressor ? I thought I could try with the sticks used for popsicle but it’s not large enough.
    Thanks a lot.

  15. These are so cute! It so inspired me to make one for my son’s teacher. I had so much fun making it too! Thanks so much for your card videos. I’ve gotten so many great ideas from your site!

  16. I get inspired on ur work, I think there are very lovely bookmarks, so I decided to make my ones! 🙂 Thnxs a lot for sharing ur ideas! 😉

  17. It’s really cute. I am having a hard time getting the hole because the wood would crack. Which tool did you use? Thanks

  18. Wow, I really loved!!! I even watched it several times. Thank you so much for having shared your video. Was it glue you used to have the white powder stick to it ? I also couldn’t figure out what the white power was? Can you be so kind and let me know? Thank you.

    1. That is versamark ink, it is a special type of ink that helps the white embossing powder to stick. The technique you are asking about is heat embossing and you need a special type of powder, the special ink and a heat gun. Google it, or check on YouTube for videos on how to heat emboss.
