Ok, so I belong to the group "Advance Swaps Non Stop" on Cafemom. There is a swap where you have to make Vintage bookmarks. Im not really sure that what I came up with is "vintage".
I still feel they need a little something more added to them or maybe I should just simply start all over. The brown peice is actually chip board and I glued paper over it and sanded the edges to make it look worn.
