Corner Bookmark

I've had a few emails and requests for a little tutorial on the corner bookmark that I did for this months Creativity.
For those of you that wanted the step by steps, here you are......

Cut a 10cm x 10cm square from card. Mark at 5cm on 3 of the edges.
Score from both side marks to the mark at the top. Fold over the card to create a point.
Cut a 6.5cm x 6.5cm square from paper. Cut this along the diagonal and use these triangles to decorate both sides of the bookmark.
Create a decorative edge along the bottom of the bookmark with a border punch.
Cut two 3cm x 10cm strips from cardstock and two 2.5cm x 9.5cm from paper.
Layer and add ribbon.
Fix these strips onto the bookmark. (I only add ribbon to the strip that will be on the top of the bookmark).
Finish by adding your chosen topper and adhesive stones.
This is what the back of my bookmark looks like.....
I would really love to see the bookmarks that you make.
Happy craftin'
