All Things Crafty~Ribbon Bookmarks!

 ~Ribbon Bookmarks~

bookmarks

I love these for party favors or little presents for my Peeps just for the heck of it! They’re easy and fun and the potential for exactly how you can decorate them with buttons, beads or trim is endless!!!

 Do you have extra ribbon lying around? How about buttons and beads?

Start with these things…I have this tool that puts an eyelet in fabric so I used that to attach the “pretties” on the end of some of the bookmarks, but it works just as well to use a needle and attach the buttons or beads…

start-here

Cut ribbon about 11 inches. Iron the edges under and sew a few stitches to keep them that way!

To make the pretty bookmark jewelry use embroidery floss (separate it to 3 strands) and thread a button or bead…needle-and-button-1

Then remove needle and thread needle again with both ends…(all strands through the eye of the needle)

 Then have fun and thread buttons or beads … when you tie this off put a dot of either : Fray Check, Super Glue or Clear Nail Polish on the knot to keep it secure!

I also fell in mad love with this adorable button trim I found at Hobby Lobby so I added it to some of the bookmarks…have you got left over trim? This is a great way to use it up making something fun!

Giving a book for a present? Tuck a bookmark inside for a little something extra!

  1. You are TOO MUCH!!! Speaking of someone who needs an Etsy store to sell things in…

  2. Yep, Gitz. I agree. And both of you know you can put an Etsy link in your sidebar and people can link right in from the blog, don’t you?

  3. Complete with photos. The link. I’m just sayin’.

  4. Yep, they’re adorable. But to make them, you have to actually have some sort of crafty talent. Since I don’t, that’s where people like you come in. So people like me can buy them. lol! Blessings, Susan

  5. Those are a fabulous idea! Get to work on the Etsy shoppe right this moment, girlfriend!
