One of the best things about shopping in Flipkart (besides the books, ofcourse)is the fancy bookmarks they give you.
So, today while cleaning my book shelf I unearthed some really old items – gift wrappers, gift labels from my friends and an old Vodaphone advertisement pamphlet. They were all too colourful and I didn’t have the heart to throw them away. So I thought I’d make my own fancy bookmarks. First I cut the colourful pictures from the pamphlet :
I had a hard time picking out the right picture but I chose the British Royal guard because of my fascination for the royal family 🙂 Then, I needed a hard surface onto which I could stick my picture. I didn’t go for a cardboard-sheet because they are too hard to handle for my poor blunt scissors. So, I used my reasonably hard b’day card label. Stick your picture on the non-written side.
Make sure you cut it in such a way that your friend’s name is still there. This way, it makes a fantastic bookmark and a lovely thing to remember your friend.
My brand new bookmark clashed really with my ‘Catcher in the Rye‘ book. There he is, the royal-guarding guarding the page numbers of my book 🙂
