Introducing My New Design: Nespresso Bookmarks

Remember my wonderful pile of Nespresso capsules waiting for something good to happen to them?
They are now turned into gorgeous and colorful bookmarks.

Here is a bunch of bookmarks in Blues and Greens:
Blue and Green shades of Upcycled Nespresso Bookmarks

And another bunch in Orange, Red, Yellow, Pink and Purple:
Orange, Red, Yellow, Pink and Purple Upcycled Nespresso Bookmarks

Each bookmark is made from a crochet circle, a Nespresso capsule and a cute decoration. Some of them have a little button, some have a flower cabochon and two have a decoration made from another capsule.

I like using the Nespresso capsules in my designs because they are so colorful and they're texture adds an interesting element to the items, in this case the bookmarks, They really sparkle as the they catch the light. The Nespresso capsules are also very easy and fun to work with, and off course there's the extra value of recycling, which is always a nice bonus.

So, here are the bookmarks, in pairs, for you to enjoy:
Gold/Teal/Light Blue & Teal/Orange

Mint Green/Peach, Apple Green/Gold & Grass Green/Gold

Orange/Dark Blue & Red/Gold
Pink/Green, Lilac/Grey/Ivory & Purple/Pink

Blue/Silver & Turquoise/Gold
Yellow/Black & Yellow/Light Purple/Pink

This is how the bookmarks look from behind:

The best thing about them is that they are completely customizable. The crochet circle, the Nespresso capsule and the decoration all can be done in whatever color you prefer and that means that you can make yourself a unique one of a kind bookmark.

These beauties are now available at my Etsy shop and are a great gift for all your loved ones, your friends and family, and even your teachers. They make great stocking fillers for the coming seasons.
