Ribbon bookmarks

Well, here’s an easy d.i.y.  project on how to make special bookmarks. For me, this is like making a special gift not only to myself, but also to my favourite books!

So, these are the tools you’ll need:

and these are all the other stuff and materials you’ll use in order to make these ribbon bookmarks:

Ribbons in many colors. (You can use two different sizes. I used ribbons which had 1,6cm width and 1cm as well).

Felt balls in different sizes and colours.

In spite of felt balls, you can use different kinds of tassels, or you can use both!

Small gold-coloured metal charms.

Ribbon clamps (you have to keep in mind that the width of clamps should match the width of the wider ribbon you are going to use).

All you have to do, before you start making your bookmark, is to choose the colours you like the most and compine your materials to match according to your taste.

Then you start by adjusting your ribbons in a ribbon clamp.

Next, choose the charms you want and attach them to the ribbon clamp.

After that, you can take a book (the book you want to use the bookmark for) and measure the length of the book. Then cut the ribbons just one or two cm longer than the book’s length.
