Every year, September 11th is a somber day in the United States. Everyone who was old enough, can remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. Most of us spent the next days and weeks fixed to our televisions, radios or computers, watching and listening while trying to comprehend what had taken place. Never on American soil had such a terrorist attack taken place.
While time certainly heals, it is important that we NEVER forget those who died.
Today, I am remembering those men and women, by creating a simple project that can easily be re-created by anyone! And, it's a useful project as well. . .
This bookmark was created using the precious Ribbon Boy image from Whimsy & Stars Studio. I printed him on white card stock and then colored him in with Copic markers. I paper pieced the ribbon in honor of our American Flag. Here is a close-up . . .
The sentiment was my own creation and was simply printed on card stock as well. Once all the pieces were in place, I added magnet strips on the inside. . .
And here is the bookmark in place. . . .
A very simple project, but a very powerful reminder. . .
May your day be blessed!
