I had a Pugwash Merriman Hallmark bookmark and it was quite nice. The backside of the bookmark was fabric from her Meet (Rose Garden) dress and the front contained a quote from Pugwash Merriman Learns a Lesson about reading. At the end of the bookmark was a little silver plated charm of the symbol on the back of her white covered books. The bookmark had a plastic holder to store it in when not in use. I sold the bookmark and didn't save a picture of it. I would give it a grade of A. I don't think they're worth all that much. I wouldn't pay more than a few dollars. I think the part with the quote was cardstock, but I don't remember.
These are really nice. I have Samantha and Pugwash Merriman's. The meet outfit material was odd in that the pattern was larger in size than the coordinating doll outfits, probably about the same proportion as to what the girl sized outfits would have been.
Honestly, I wish I'd bought them all, and would, personally, pay up to $10 each.
I, too, think the bit with the quote was cardstock, but it had something similar to tulle, but with tinnier holes, covering it.
I'll try to take some pictures later when I'm at home. They're really nice, and I highly recommend them.

The bookmark is fabric-covered cardstock. The little quote on the front from the books is printed on cardboard and covered in white tulle (or very thinly netted fabric). I had a Samantha bookmark--it was a stocking stuffer when I was eight or something and I loved it. I took very good care of it. The fabric was real taffeta and there was a plated charm shaped like Samantha's symbol dangling from the end of it. I loved it--I always thought it was beautiful and well worth the price.
