Crafty Ribbons Anything Goes: Printable Shrink Plastic Butterflies Bookmark

Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a project to show you using Crafty Ribbons Vintage Butterfly Ribbon for our 'Anything Goes' challenge. This range is without doubt one of my favourite ranges they have created- so versatile and pretty!

I started by cutting the ribbon long enough to save a book's pages effectively. I used a book I own to do so. I then placed clamps at either end of the ribbon once I had glued the ends and that makes a stronger bond which prevents fraying.

I then made my embellishments for the bookmark-following the butterfly theme! I used Printable shrink plastic and printed off some gorgeous free vintage butterfly digis from The Graphics Fairy which is one of my favourite sites on the internet!
I cut round the butterflies once I was sure the ink was dry and I left a place to punch a hole into so I would be able to attach them to my bookmark.
They were then been baked until small in the oven. Make sure you don't touch them when they are really hot!
Once they had cooled and pressed until flat after heating in a heavy book I added rings to attach them to my ribbon bookmark. A simple and easy project!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
