Old school bookmarks

Every few months, I donate one of my upcycled book tablet cases to "Book'd in Burbank," a booklovers' event in L.A. I send along a giveaway to advertise my cases, usually bookmarks (which is ironic, since you can't use paper bookmarks with e-readers).

For past events, I've made bookmarks out of Monopoly money and paint chips. This time around, I turned to my two latest obsessions -- vintage yearbooks and security envelopes.

I came up with a new tag line, too -- High tech goes old school in a tablet case made from a vintage book. I used it on the back of new business cards I sent along with the bookmarks.

No wonder the 1970s are known as the era of the curling iron!

As I was cutting strips from the yearbook pages, I looked at smiling faces of the young students, wondering how their lives had turned out. Then I noticed some oddities. Can you spot them below?

College hi-jinks, I guess.
