tyvek bookmarks


Went to my friends Pats today and she showed me how to make tyvek bookmarks. Tyvek can be sewn through but is also very lightweight and durable. I learnt a great way to print images clearly on fabrics today too..just spread slightly watered down pva school glue over thin material let it dry then use masking tape to feed it through the printer taped to A4 card....it worked really well. I used some of my old dyed material to pva then printed and stamped some images on it..really took the ink well..finished the bookmarks with some sari ribbon.

glad you enjoyed yourself - the sari ribbon finishes them off - I finished my mini-frame after you had gone
