Rockin Skater bookmarks

Are these super "COOL" or what?

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that some of the older students fold the pages of the books they are reading GASP!! I was promised that if I made a really cool bookmark they would use it. (truth be known, they would probably use any bookmark since the look on their faces told me that no one had ever told them not to do that) These were so much fun to make. All of the sentiments and the pieces of cardstock behind them are small scraps that had been lying around my table. I stamped the backgrounds of my main image in gray first then heat embossed the main skater dude. I also stamped the light gray paper then embossed it along with the backs of the bookmarks. The kids loved them.
