Ribbon bookmark and tin

I CASEd this idea from Terry Earhart (her blog, http://www.stampinandstylin.blogspot.com/ ) .
She brought it to Nancy's last demo meeting and I thought it was such a great idea.
She made hers with Tea Party DP and Sweet Stems. What I love about this is that you can leave some of the circles blank (as I have done on the back but didn't think to take a picture of) and add punched photos instead of stamps. I think I will make one for my mum for her birthday and have a picture of each of her 4 grandchildren.

Tins were bought from Target (favor tins) and most other supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamp sets - Darling Dots (Hostess level 1 SS09)
Cardstock & DP - Sweet Slumber DSP, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Inks - Ruby Red, Baja Breeze
Accessories (SU!) - So Saffron ribbon (SAB 09), Big Shot Flowers #3 die, Ribbon slider from Hodgepodge Hardware (styled silver).
Accessories (non-SU!) - Scallop circle nestie (around 1.75 inches), Plain circle nestie (around 1.25 inches), circle punch (1 inch and 0.75 inch - marvy), light blue ribbon.
The bookmark then folds over (concertina-style) and fits in the little tin. Very quick to make and can be adapted to any style and color scheme.
