Oh, my dearest Capricorns. You are a disciplined, responsible and ambitious group. To celebrate your birthday in this month number one, I thought a homemade bookmark was most appropriate. 

I wanted to create something that I could easily send in an envelope and something that was bright and festive in this post-Holiday month. Something to help you mark off all of those things you are currently achieving.

I created the bookmark out of two colors of construction paper, craft and purple, and a silver pen for the chevron stripe detailing. There was a bit of glue to hold it all together, too. To fasten the bookmark to the page, I thought painting a small clothespin in a bright turquoise would bring functionality and also bring delight.

 A very happy birthday to my month one friends. I do hope books follow you around eagerly this year and that you have many, many chances to read many, many wonderful stories.
