How cute are these??? They are magnetic bookmarks from Etsy shop A Paper Playground!
Look at that panda!!!
Especially love the beaver and the bronto! (Source)
These magnetic bookmarks are sold at $1 a pop! (Though initial $2.50 shipping). I was thinking of picking up a few for keeps and a few for gifts. But then I had a day off and I was like, "Hey, I can make these!" So I set off to make my own! I think A Paper Playground uses like a Circut or something that makes nice symmetrical, straight lines. Or she cuts really well.
Mine was less tidy and neat and has more... character! :-P See! Meet Mr. Froggy:
Each item is a piece of cardstock paper (except for the eyes and mouth).
Hopefully I won't get sued for design plagarism. I just wanted to play on paper playground too! I came up with the lilypad all on my own!
Then today when I was browsing at TY stuffed animals and stumbled on this CUTIE!
His name is Arctic. (Source)
So I used him as my inspiration for today's cut out! :]

I'll have to work on my animals. But they're kind of fun to put together. :] I can use the practice, so which animal would you like?
