Simply Sassy Corner Bookmark Tutorial!

Hi Simply Sassy Fans!

I'm so excited to share my corner bookmark tutorial for Simply Sassy with you today! :D I am going out of my comfort zone and have created a video tutorial! This is my first EVER so bear with me. haha I hope you don't mind being my guinea pigs! ;) I thought it would be fun and it actually was once I got over my stage fright! It is a bit long so I apologize in advance.

So here is what we're going to make in the video:

Super easy to create! Here is what you will need:

1 - 4" x 4" heavy cardstock 
2 - 1 7/8"x 3 7/8" pattern paper
1 - 2 3/4" 2 3/4" pattern paper
Embellishments as desired!

Here is the tutorial *sorry the quality is bad - I had to reduce it in order to get the video to load up to youtube* Any tips, suggestions, etc. are greatly welcomed for my first attempt at a video tutorial!

I really hope you enjoyed it! I was talking softly since my girls were asleep and my craft room is right outside their room! *giggle* I can't wait to do another one! The first one is always the hardest right?! LOL I know how to edit them now, but need to figure out how to keep a decent resolution while uploading. Anyhow! Like I mentioned in my video, I'd LOVE to see your bookmarks. Please link them up in this post and I'll be sure to visit your blog! :D

SUPER CUTE!!! I made one for Carla once. With a C on it from snaps etc. I did it upside down. We still crack up over it LMAO Great video! I think they have to be under 10 minutes to keep the high resolution??? I have never done that but I thought I heard that. I thought it looked fine though :)
