New Creation – Crochet Applique Bookmarks

Although I’m quite busy starting this week with my scientist work, I plan to create at least one new creation per week for my therapy :p. So I won’t be able to update my blog that frequent ****sob,sob :(****.

Anyway this week I managed to try one of my to-do-list item, which is book mark. Honestly I’m not really a book person, but I guess it will be useful for anyone who like to indulge in thick novels or books :p. It might be a nice gift too.

For this first try, I made some crochet applique & glue it onto a hard type plastic sheet where you can get in any stationary shop. Punch a hole & slip in a ribbon. So here’s the new bookmark:

What do you think? 

I have a bit of problem on making the glue look nice at the back side of the bookmark as the plastic sheet is kinda see thru. I’ve tried UHU glue for the first one but it makes it a bit messy, then I’ve tried glue gun, a bit cleaner but still not that nice looking.
Anyone has a suggestion on what type of glue or how to glue this acrylic appliques on plastic sheet nicely so that it’s more presentable when ppl flip it?
