Bookmark: Split with Fun Foam






Our Daily Bread Designs has bookmark stamps and matching dies.  My grandson, Jakob, wanted to make another bookmark.  I really like the split bookmark, but it was too flimsy with a single layer of card stock.  I chose Fun Foam to make the bookmark more sturdy.

The book is A-Z Beekeeping with the Slovenian Hive by Janko Bozic.  I liked the pretty cover.
