Shabby Lace and Charm bookmark!

Hello everyone! 

Today I'm sharing a really easy and quick project!

For Wild Orchid Crafts DT challenge for the month of May we were asked to create a project highlighting WOC charms! So I dug out some connecters and some butterfly charms in a silver attached them to one of the newly released netted laces and made my own bookmark! 

Here's my video sharing it with the tutorial as I put it together and another idea popped in my head for June's challenge project!! I'll share that in the next few days with ya'll! BUT...

...for July, I am doing another challenge extension to you guys and will share it all soon...I do mention it in my video....

Here it is....enjoy!!

Here are some pretty pics of my bookmark!!

Wild Orchid Crafts items I used:
Cord clasps 
(from Hobby Lobby, Michael's and Joann's has these too!)

Thanks for hanging out with me today! 
Hope you could use this project for an idea of your own!
Have a great day, xo, Jules
God Bless!:)
