DIY Bookmark From Recycled Pasta Box :)

I made a bookmark from a recycled box :)

I took a pasta box

and started by sanding it
with regular sand paper from the hardware store

Then I started adding some acrylic paint

using a sea sponge

letting the colors dry for a little bit in between layers
that way they don't mix that much and make mud

after all the paints were dry

I stamped the letters with some foam letters I have

and of course I couldn't leave the other side empty
so I did some collage by cutting out a magazine 
and adding some white paint to make the flower

I wasn't sure the other side was going to come out right
so I didn't take pictures of the step by step for this side 
the flowers are made with white acrylic paint and a pencil eraser
and the hears are a stamp I have :)

I hope you like it :)

Take care,
