♥ Dress form bookmark ♥

I recently bought Tim Holtz sewing room die, (which was on my "must have list" .... LOL )
I decided to make a bookmark using the dressform using card and Melissa Frances paper , punched a hole and added a book tassle.  Trimmed the waistline with satin ribbon and a heart shaped pearl embellishment.  I liked this idea :) hope you do too .... :)

Thanks for popping by
