Don't Forget School this Week at Pixie Dust Studio!

This week's challenge at Pixie Dust Studio is to make a tag or bookmark with a school theme.
I chose "Hermione" from the Harry Potter Collection. Fibers were threaded through the hole at the top of the tag, and square beads were attached. The paperclip is from Target.

Strips of torn paper were stitched on the tag, and a mesh ribbon was added.

A paper rose was added. Then charms and more beads were wired to the bottom of the tag.
What will you add to a tag or bookmark for this  week's "Don't Forget School" challenge?

Pixie Tip
I LOVE Copic markers! I LOVE Prisma pencils! I LOVE to mix the two. Unfortunately the tips of my markers do NOT love the waxy substance left behind by Prismas. I actually threw two Copic sketch tips away GASP before I stumbled upon this tip. I clean the insides of my Copic caps with rubbing alcohol, so why not try it on the tips too? I poured a little rubbing alcohol into a small lid. (A Snapple ice tea lid is a good size.) Then I swirled the marker tip around in the rubbing alcohol a few times and blotted it on a paper towel.(I left the tip attached to the pen. I did not remove it.) It worked! I had a nice, clean tip again! The tip will turn white after cleaning, so I refilled the marker to saturate the tip with ink, No clogging; and free flowing!
