Scrap happy bookmarks

I recently pinned a cute tute on making use of tiny scraps of fabric by creating bookmarks.   
Since I'm an avid reader, I thought I would whip some up.
I used a bookmark I already have, as a guide.  Just laid my fabrics out in the order I wanted, stitched, ironed on some interfacing,  sewed right sides together with another fabric for the back, then turned right side out and stitched around the edges.  Easy peasy..
I added a loop of ribbon to the tops and stitched my initials on one side of my "artwork".
Once I got the hang of it, each one took me less than 10 minutes.  My kind of project!
Bubbie came home from school while I was in the thick of it and asked for his own.  Which got me to thinking:  there's a lot of people I could make these for, including his brothers, sister, aunt, grandmother...
Good thing I have plenty o' scraps!
