Take Me Away

We've reached the end of the week and I've got
more ideas to turn scrap paper into bookmarks.

Blah: reminders of a trip taken long ago.

TADA!: make your old ticket more useful!

TADA!: a souvenir napkin to mark a page.

TADA!: a museum badge to remind you
where you left off.

TADA!: an old boarding pass to tell you
you are in the story.

TADA!: let your books take a whiff of
your favorite bakery.

{This bookmark was created by trimming the paper
and inserting it into a plastic ID sleeve}

Books can take you to new places.
Travel bookmarks can bring you back
to places you've been to.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Aw cute ideas ! I just use old receipts for bookmarks because I always lose mine haha.

  2. Thanks for visiting Lindsey! Receipts work, too!

  3. I love your blog! Did you take a trip to Brazil? I saw the Varig boarding pass, I´m brazilian, and I see your blog everyday (I´m glad your pc is alive!)
    I also think that is very important to recycle, and you do a great job.

  4. Thanks so much Marina for your comment :) Yes, I took a trip to Brazil in 2007 -- Sao Paulo & Rio! I had a wonderful time! I loved the Pao de Quiejo, Acai (prepared like a sherbet)& tried the Feijoada, too. And of course, I bought a pair of Melissas & Havaianas, and some CDs, too :)

  5. Just stopping by to say hi. These are wonderfully useful and simple ideas!

  6. This is such a great idea, I always keep stuff like this to remind me of past trips. Thanks for the great tip!

  10. Hey...I have that book "A Homemade Life" by Molly Wizenberg...a friend gave it to me! Have you tried any recipes in there? I LOVED how it starts off that they eat better at home than most folks eat at restaurants!!!

    Hello Marfa! I really loved Molly's book and her writing style! I read her column on Bon Appetit mag & would like to visit her pizza place in Seattle. Thanks for visiting...happy crafting, happy eating :)
