To create this bookmark, I used Martha Stewart's lace border puncher which I bought for RM79.90.I also used imported USA Embossing powders, embossing ink and japanese rubber stamps to create the images.I also used a big butterfly puncher to cut out the blue butterfly, which I bought for RM54.90.For the embossing technique, I bought a heat tool worth RM109.90.Most of my supplies are imported and you cannot buy it in Malaysia.I also bought a laminating machine to laminate each and every bookmark so that it is waterproof and more lasting.Imagine all the money I spend, just to create one single design for the bookmark and only selling for RM2 each.
          To be honest, my entire supplies cater to make these collection of bookmarks cost me slightly more than RM1000.OUCH! Do u know how much does a standard A3size laminating machine costs?I surveyed the price and it was RM480! I bought the A4 size laminator and of course its  cheaper.I also found out that the laminating service at photostat centres for A4 size is RM2.50.If you laminate your IC, its costs RM1.50 and a small photo would costs RM1 each.Imagine how competitive my bookmarks costs.For every RM2 you pay for the bookmark, RM1 will be donated to my church building fund.We need a large sum of money to buy a new building and we are planning to move out in 3 years time.I am just trying my small bit to help out in the church building fund.Yes, I am a christian.Although I don't earn much from making these bookmarks, but I really do enjoy making them.Hope you readers will show some support.
I will be giving free delivery to anywhere in Malaysia if you buy 3 bookmarks and above.If you buy below 3, just add RM0.90 for the envelope and postage.
Price:RM2 only

Till then, will post up more close up pics of the bookmarks in my next post! C ya!
