From Zero to Hero (take two!)

Remember these poorly-stamped images from this post ?
Well,  I revamped the images and turn them into two book marks. I am sending them to my two dear stamping/blogging friends.
you brighten my day
I added a bit of Stickles on the little birdies and stamped Newspaper Background on Kraft card stock. I like how warm and sweet these two book marks look.  Now when you want to throw some boo-boos away, think of a way to re-use them. You will be surprised what you can do!
Thanks for brightening my day!

Oh you smart lady! (And I do throw away my boo-boos!) Now I have to rethink that!

Nice save, Virginia - I love your bookmarks! There's usually something we can save from those crafting boo-boos.

A crafter after my own heart... throw something away? Are you kidding? :P These bookmarks are a great way to repurpose those (barely) imperfect images. :)

I have a hard time throwing any art away, so it's nice to see that you also used up some previously steamed images! Love it!

Perfect idea!
I find for most boo-boos, I save them for another day. I hide them under the pile of "stuff I'm going to use" so that I can look at them with fresh eyes when I'm not feeling frustrated. I love that you showcased how you do it!
