Pastor Appreciation Bookmark – by Esther Asbury

$2.95 Shipping within the US – Current Shipping Special!

Welcome all! Esther is here today with such a wonderful gift idea. She made this gorgeous fall themed bookmark for her pastor for Pastor Appreciation Month, who, incidentally, is her husband who is an avid reader. I am sure he will LOVE this gift from the heart, made by his wife. Take a look:

A bookmark is always such a wonderful and thoughtful gift to give, not to mention how fun they are to make!

Esther cut a simple rectangle for the bookmark base, created a lovely leafy cluster, added a sentiment and a ribbon topper.

Esther stamped and colored the oak leaf and acorns from our Give Thanks set, fussy cut them with scissors, then used the coordinating dies to cut a base of the kraft/brown colored cardstock upon which to layer them. I LOVE this look!

The skeleton leaves beneath are dies by Tim Holtz and we are waiting for their arrival – we’ll keep you posted.

Thank you so much, Esther, for this beautiful bookmark and the inspiration it brings.

Truly a beautiful project!
