Repurposed Bookmark Cover

I have this bookmark with cover
that I've had for awhile.
The artwork doesn't really suit me anymore,
so I came up with a way to repurpose it.
Below is the original artwork.

I sorted through some of my vintage wrapping paper,
but you could use scrapbook paper or even fabric.

Then I used the old bookmark for a guide
and cut out from two different papers.

Since I had two sides to show I picked two different papers,
but they could've been the same.

Then I added a yarn tassel,
here is an easy way to pull the yarn through
using a crochet hook.
 So there you have it, 
a nice new bookmark that I can change up
any time I feel like it!

Bye for now!
