Craft'ed Van Bookmarks

Monday, 19 January 2015
Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be showing off some awesome bookmarks that I acquired recently. Although how I came about these is a bit of a story. I found Craft'ed on Etsy before Christmas and ordered a few for my friends as presents. I was really excited for them to arrive but when they did they hadn't been completed, there were no magnets! I thought it was some sort of mistake so I messaged them and they apologised and sent out some more. But when the next set had arrived, they had sent me a mini Luna Lovegood for my friend instead of the regular sized one! By this point I was a wee bit miffed but they again apologised and said they would post one out straight away, this time with a little surprise. Which turned out to be the Hagrid bookmark you see below! Whilst it was annoying that I had to wait so long to get everything I'd ordered, I didn't mind too much because a) everything came in time for Christmas anyway and b) I got two free bookmarks out of it. I think it was juts because in the run up to Christmas they got more orders than they could really handle.

I think these bookmarks make really awesome presents and they look really great in a book. Craft'ed have so many designs to choose from and you can buy little sets of all the characters from one movie etc. For example, I bought my friend Sarah the Frozen set and she's using them to section off her subjects in her university notepads. There are so many different things that you can use them for! They fold over and have magnets in them so they 'clip' onto the page and save your page. I try not to, but I will often find myself reading more than one book at once so its really handy for me to have several bookmarks, that way I don't have to try and memorise my page numbers! The only problem I have with these is that the printed image gets a bit sticky when if humid/wet. When I was reading in the bath I picked up my Hagrid one and some of the colour came off the back and stuck to my finger! It was a bit annoying but I'll just need to keep that in mind when using them in the future!

What do you think? Aren't they adorable?
