    Great bookmarks! Why didn't I market the tool to do those? We used to make bookmarks in paper just like this technique approx. 50 years ago.

    what a wonderful idea, I have that tool and they are fun. It's too bad I never think of these things in time to actually make some for gifts. Maybe next year

    Free downloadable pattern

    You can get the free downloadable Double Diamond bookmark pattern at http://www.bright-quilting-notions.com/. Just click on "Free Patterns" on the left-hand side. The Double Diamond Rulers are also available at that site if your local quilt store doesn't carry them!
