This sparkly bookmark was inspired by an email sent to a crochet mailing list I am a member of. One lady was looking for a Heart Shaped bookmark with a tail, then a day or so later, someone replied with the idea of making a snowflake with a tail for a bookmark. Well I thought that was a great idea so I designed one. Hope you like it.

You could starch this lightly but I didn't. The plastic strand in this thread sort of acts like a stiffening agent on it's own.
*The Pearl Knit Cro Sheen is just Knit Cro Sheen with a strand of plastic running through it. Really pretty. I bought it at Wal-Mart.
