After finishing the card keeper I had lots of scraps of thinnish, single sided patterned paper left. What to do with it? Oh, sure, I could make more cards, and will do with some of it, but I remembered making a little origami bookmark for my DS and thought that might be something useful to do with the scraps – and frankly, I don’t need THAT many cards, after my marathon last week!
I’ve deviated from the instructions a bit so have noted where and why.
If you are using double-sided paper (and really, thin is good here – cardstock is too thick, for this many folds) you can skip the folding back – I just didn’t like the white side showing after the tucking-in part:
I added the decorative scallop, but that us also not a requirement. I just thought it looked nice.
You can add it to either side of the book. I’ve been reading the Holly Black books (this one is Valiant – a very enjoyable and quick read) so used that to show it in place:
Fast, easy, cute and useful. Perfect use of scraps!
