It's almost BACK-TO-SCHOOL time and over at MY SHERI CRAFTS CHALLENGE we want to see what you've created!  Even if you don't have kids going off to school you can still join in on the fun by making a clever bookmark or a unique journal cover.  I have been wanting to do a perforated bookmark card for a while so here's my take on one:
I used up some scraps here and even a card base that I had messed up while stamping.  I just turned it inside out and decorated on top of it.  I started with a pre-made card that was 5" x 6.5".
I used my scoreboard and this handy little tool I found in the sewing department and poked holes down one side at 2.5".  I wanted the bookmark to fold over the page and be held together with magnets to it won't fall out.  I cut tiny strips of magnet and placed at the bottom of both ends.
Now, when you give a card, they can have something to take away from it ;-)

Great idea, Sheri, and especially great for us empty-nesters who have no school kids or grands (yet)!
