I had this idea for funny bookmark a little bit ago when I was reading "Wicked: The Life and Times of The Wicked Witch of the West," and I thought, there's no WAY that no one else hasn't thought of this yet. So I googled, trying to find a bookmark that someone had made like this, and couldn't find one. I just had to make one before the idea vanished from my brains. A bookmark with the Wicked Witch of the East's legs and the ruby slippers...
I made the legs out of white polyclay (which turned brown in the toaster oven; I guess I shouldn't bake stuff while I'm outdoors deshedding the dog and can't hear the timer dinging). Before baking, I cut a slit on the top of each leg so I could attach them to a paper. I painted everything with acrylic ink then aded red glitter and some teensy paper bows. I kind of was impatient and handled them too soon before drying, so they're kinda smudgy. Then I just glued em to an ephemera card that Audio sent me a while back.
Hi ho, the witch is dead! Which old witch? The wicked witch! Happy Friday, everyone! Have a good weekend.
PS. When we were tiny kids, my brother and sister and I thought it was SO HILARIOUS in the Wizard of Oz, when they take the ruby slippers off of the witch's feet and they curl up and shrink back under the house! We'd rewind and watch it over and over. It still makes me chuckle to even think about it.
Oh my goodness! What a great idea! This is so hilarious! :)
THIS is why I read your blog. This is brilliant! I love how the legs stand up on their own, too.
Very cute and I've never see that before! What a wonderful idea. :)

I love this and you blog (new follower). I had to share it on the facebook page.
Love it ! Such a brilliant idea ! Wizard of Oz rocks. I see some sellers on etsy have taken your idea on board, not sure if they conjured it themselves but to me yours will always remain original.
(I did the rewinding thing too with my bro whenever we find something funny hehe.)
