Today I carved my first pumpkin! 😀 It was difficult! Click on the images to make them larger.
The Jack-O-Lantern first had two teeth, but one was accidentally lost when I carved some more… Oh, well, at least he has one tooth. 🙂
It’s just a small pumpkin on a little plate. I now have a little candle inside it. It looks nice where it burns. I have taken off the lid.
And here are some bookmarks I made today:
I don’t know how well you can see some of the bookmarks. The stickers, which mum got from Sweden, shimmers. There’s ghosts and pumpkins, a few bats and a few candy corns and stars.
I like to make photo copies of different small templates and use them for bookmarks etc. For the horizontal bookmark I used such templates (in orange). I put a piece of yellow paper behind to make it look like they are burning. The eyes I just cut out free hand.
I always cover the bookmarks with book plastic so they will last longer.
I have lots of bookmarks. Last time I counted them they were 1178 bookmarks, but that was quite some time ago. I think now it is probably 1250, or more, or less… I will count them later this week.
