Custom Designed Bookmarks

Like most artsy types, I decided to take the handmade challenge this holiday season. I experimented with soap making, which was a first, and I made an array of handmade bookmarks.
Below is an array of some of the bookmarks I made throughout December.

This process got me thinking of some of the custom made bookmarks I've made for clients. My favorite set was an orchid theme. I had just been to the Longwood Gardens exhibit a few months previous to the commission. There was a room with walls full of beautiful breeds of orchids. This was one of the major inspirations for this set.
