Stretching the Imagination
I was surfing the net, looking for colored elastic, when I came across these bookmarks from Levenger. I just love them, I have never seen bookmarks like them, and I immediately wanted them. Alas! They cost $6.00 each!!
Well, I decided to take a shot making my own. I really felt like they were a simple enough concept.
These are two that I made. I think they are beautiful and, at a cost of about $.25 each, much more economical.

You can pretty much tell from the picture what I did. Just cut a slot in top of bookmark wide enough for width of elastic. Use marker to color outside edge of board. Decoupage paper to board, trim slot. When dry, slip elastic through the slot and glue ends together to form loop. Wait for adhesive to completely dry before attempting to use your bookmark.
If you want your elastic to be a different color, just dye it. The only dye I had around was soap dye, I used it and it worked just fine.
